This is for people who already write songs, both established songwriters in the industry and people who are at earlier stages in their story. This is not a course, there are no teachers and no students. The mentors are here to help you on your own individual journey to develop your songwriting on the path that’s right for you. We remind you of golden rules about songwriting, techniques, philosophies and approaches that the delicate art seems to favour. It’s beyond inspiration. We believe the songwriters who come on our retreats are able to reach deeper levels by immersing themselves in our unique weekend experience. To advance, sometimes the best move is a retreat.
