Kenny Schick Song Screening 1-2pm



The Evolution of a Song – this year’s workshop will take the participants from demos to masters. Kenny will talk about how a song is built and what to think about as you are creating. These workshops are always popular because they are filled with so much information. There is time to ask questions and importantly Kenny makes them fun.

The 2022 Conference is WCS’s 42nd Anniversary and the longest running continuous music conference of its kind in the country. This event and all others (15+ per month) are run by volunteers and have been for 40 years and on a shoestring budget.  You will get a chance to meet fellow musicians and industry leaders volunteering their time to mentor in the full day of seminars, workshops, and mentoring sessions in an intimate setting.
