Learn guitar for a cause!
Malaysia’s nationwide lockdown to curb the surge in COVID-19 cases has caused many to face economic hardship. Too many have lost their jobs, are left unable to afford basic needs like food and rent, and tragically, suicide rates have increased drastically.
This guitar workshop is an effort by two friends who want to spread their love for the instrument while raising funds for fellow Malaysians in need. 100% of the proceeds will go to The Lost Food Project, a Malaysian non-profit organization that has been aiding those struggling to cope in these trying times.
Date: 22 Aug 2021, Sunday
Time: 10am - 12pm MYT
Platform: Zoom (Invitation will be sent out via email)

About the Instructor
Nishanth Selvalingam is a poet, songwriter and yoga teacher in Los Angeles, California. After hearing the opening riff of Black Sabbath's Iron Man while painting a poster for a middle school art project, Nish had an epiphany: the only thing he wanted to do was be a rock 'n roll guitar player. He started his career playing guitar for Indie-RnB singers in Kuala Lumpur open mic clubs. Meanwhile, a solo career was incubating somewhere in the wilderness of his SoundCloud discography. After deciding against going to law school, Nish moved to Los Angeles instead and attended UCLA where he formed the alternative rock band, Santiago's Trip with his college mates. They played the Viper Room, a lifelong dream of Nish's and shortly after, imploded because of disagreements between band members. Nish entered a dark period in which he nearly abandoned his music career. But after spending some time in Vietnam and Thailand "finding himself" (thou shalt not make 'Eat Pray Love' references) and listening to A LOT of Frank Zappa, he returned to LA to start making albums in the kitchen of his Westwood apartment, where he currently resides with the Love of his Life and a few orchids. He fronts the New Age rock band Matsya and is studying for an Associate of Arts in Music from Musicians Institute, Los Angeles.
