About the Workshops


2018 WORKSHOP 

Join us in Canyon Lake, convenient to both Austin and San Antonio 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, fantastic/organic meals and snacks along with separately paid accommodations at the awesome Mystic Quarry, where we will take advantage of their brand new facility and beautifully chic housing, surrounded by nature including hike and bike trails, hammocks, a pool, bocce ball, horseshoe pit,  sand volleyball, General Store, exercise room, and more!

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.
