Guitarist Chuck Loeb presents the special guitar workshop/seminar for musicians of all ages and levels that want to pursue the many facets of guitar playing. The String Training discussions and classes will address many of the topics and challenges facing today’s guitarists including jazz, blues, rock and fusion improvisation; chord structures and accompaniment; sight reading, practice and study habits; tone and sound production both live and in the studio, as well as technical advice on instruments, amps and pedals boards.

In this third year of String Training, taking place at the world-renowned Boscov’s Berks Jazz Fest, Chuck is honored to be joined by fellow guitarists Chieli Minucci and Frank Vignola. The format will be interactive — with instruction, discussion, question and answer sessions, student participation. So bring your axe, your pick, your strings, and your strap as we prepare you for the new season of guitar at Chuck Loeb’s String Training (cleats not required).
