2017 Songwriting Retreat – October 6 to 8th

2017 Sold Out!

Join us in Wimberley, just southwest of Austin for an inspiring, intimate retreat of listening, learning, writing and playing with renowned Texas music icon Ian Moore. This retreat includes the program led by Ian, meals and snacks along with separately paid accommodations at the beautiful Wimberley Inn https://wimberleyinn.com where we will take advantage of their charming facilities surrounded by nature including five acres with various outside seating areas, a Zen garden and a nature trail.

These retreats provide an opportunity to un-plug, relax and commune with like-minded souls, finding inspiration in collaboration amidst the beautiful surroundings in the hill country along with private performances by Ian and the opportunity to jam with everyone involved.

Cost: 

Tuition is $800 with returning participants receiving a $100 discount. A 50% deposit holds your spot with the remainder to be paid by September 15th. Tuition will include the entire program plus your meals and then you will book your accommodations directly with the Wimberley Inn. Due to the nature of the program and meal program with the Inn, we prefer for everyone to stay onsite if possible.
