Whether you are a beginner or advanced musician, proficient at reading music or learn by ear, have formal training or are self-taught, there is something for you at our music retreats. 

Surround yourself with others who share your passion. Get a chance to jam with fellow players, learn from performers you might only know from the stage, and expand your musical horizons. You will improve your skills, expand your community, and immerse yourself in the magic of music. 

We have been hosting fantastic music retreats in locations across the globe for the last few years. Our goal is to partner with some of our favorite musicians and together create supportive, learning experiences. Guitar (all styles), song-writing, composing, fiddle, mandolin are some of the retreats we’ve done. Master Artists, turning their attention from performing to teaching at these events have included Martin Taylor, Sergio Assad, Mike Marshall, Darol Anger, David Wilcox, and Adam Rafferty.

We pick locations that will encourage the exploration of one’s creativity and musicianship. When participants walk away having learned something new, made new friends, are content and inspired, can’t wait to join us again and had fun too - we know we have done our job.
