Wake up and smell the coffee with Cory Wong

If you follow any of WaterBear’s social media channels, you’ll have noticed two exciting new video series’ which we’ve been running since the beginning of 2021.

‘Wake Up and Smell the Coffee’ and ‘Hot Noodle’ aim to inspire musicians and encourage them to Be Ready for when things get back to normal.

These short videos feature special guests, tutors, and students; it’s a lot of fun!

We were beyond delighted that our first instalment featured none other than the extraordinary Cory Wong. As always, Cory is completely inspiring and we’re so proud to have him as a patron here at the college.
