FAQ

What actually happens on the retreats?
There are a wide range of creative and mind-expanding activities undertaken in the group room, as well as a one to one with a songwriting mentor each day. There is also a one to one with a professional therapist to discuss whatever you like, in strict confidence.

Our main aim is to give you new tools and a new approach to write your best songs after you leave and to carry this new approach forward but you will certainly get the chance to be creative during the retreat itself, too.

You can even team up with any of the other 8 to 10 songwriters on the retreat to write songs in your hotel room as you can hire a Fender guitar and amp, at no extra charge.

The retreat could be used as the start of a longer songwriting expidition, such as before your band goes off to write a new album or, if it is being used more for leisure, as the start of a longer holiday in Europe or at the Hard Rock Hotel.

What is the purpose of the session with the psychodynamic counsellor?
We feel that songwriter’s usually strike gold when they are able to connect to an instrospective honesty within themselves. We lay out all our activities to try and set up the conditions for this alchemy.
I already live in London, may I come on the retreat without booking accomodation?
We may be able to be flexible with this, so please get in touch.
Are all activies compulsory?
No, you don’t have to attend any activies that you don’t want to.
Are any meals included?
A buffet breakfast is included only.
How can I pay?
Payments are accepted via credit card and bank transfer. 50% is required as a non-refundable deposit and then the remaining half anytime up to two weeks before the event.

The reason the deposit is non-refundable is because we will book a hotel room and more on your behalf and this process begins once you have signed up and paid your deposit.
