This Friday we’re hosting nine females who represent just a small part of the women who have graduated from our classes over the last five years, but they do rule. MEET THEM AND LEARN FROM THEM this Friday at 7pm.
Learn about music technology from some of the talented women from MMMMAVEN — friends, partners, alumnae, and current students.
This event will feature DJ and live performances, gear demos, Q&As, and general discussions.
Generations of girls have grown up believing technology is not designed for them. Times are a-changing, but for many women that ingrained idea is still true. We want to feature some of our graduates and have them tell you their story and show off their skills.
There will be plenty of awesome music, networking opportunities, refreshments, and fun!
Performances by: Azurely, BEYUN, Dissoule, abco, Guzzalina, Nara DJ, Jayana, Musicisart, C8, DJ Machi
You’ll have an opportunity to play around with equipment and ask instructors questions. We’ll also be raising money for schorlarships.
