David Wong Cover Tune Workshop

Learn how to “chop” and “loop”
January 25 – March 3, 2018

About: The David Wong Cover Tune Workshop (DWCT) is a unique program, open to all ages and levels, includes large ensemble jam sessions, musicianship skills class & combo sessions with opportunities to learn how to “chop” and “loop”. Participants will play and create cover tunes (pop, rock, and/or R&B) with David Wong each Thursday night.

This program is mainly taught by acoustic/electric violinist David Wong, but will also feature guest artist educators including violinist Aaron Schwartz and violist Stephanie Price-Wong.

Workshop Outline

  • 7:30-8:45pm Everyone will be in Kilbourne Hall with David for large group piece(s) and will learn general improvisation, ear training, and basic theory along with chopping and looping techniques. We might break into small groups to learn more tunes, but this will depend on enrollment.
  • UPDATED: Finale Concert will take place on Saturday, March 3. All students will arrive for warmups at 2:30pm and then concert will begin at 3:00pm in Kilbourne Hall.
