Anybody planning on going to this? We don't have a forum for strings other than sitar, and the performance/workshop link is a little flaky so I'm told. So, putting it here. But this includes sitar, headed up by Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. Out of my state, otherwise I would go. But for some of you guys in California.......good opportunity.

Good to know...but for those residing in the Bay area...there is one more long term option....Ali Akbar Khan's school in San Rafel. I usually learn a lot...just sitiing and listening to him give lessons. The fee for the Amjad Ali course seems a tad high as well. But he is known to be a good communicator/teacher...so all the best to those who can make it.

Yes. I've been to AACM. Only problem is finding a place to park anywhere near their building. A very hi-density tourist area. Be prepared for a long walk unless you really luck-out and find a spot on the street.
