What Our Attendees Say:

"Thanks for all of it; the retreat, your music and friendship. After last year's retreat, I decided to work on my songwriting throughout the year. This year I've decided to work on a songwriting career." P. Kronowit - California


"I can't even explain how wonderful of a time I had, and how each and every one of you made this "newbie" feel like an old friend so quickly. I am reborn in my music. The tools that everyone shared will be put to good use." Phil Epstein - NJ


"Wow! This year’s retreat was the best yet. So nice to see Scott and Jen back teaching. This is just a special time for me. The collaborations were great this year, food amazing, BUGS were even good. Hanging around amazing people in an amazing place how can it not feed your soul?" C. Brooks - Escanaba, MI (WUP)


"It was wonderful to feel so welcomed in, and most definitely looking forward to getting together again. Inspiration abounds!" C. Parsa - Maryland


"What an amazing experience with absolutely amazing people. So grateful for every single one of you." C McDowell - Duluth, GA


I keep hoping that Webster's would invent better superlatives, because the many I know already are not up to the task of describing my delight in being with all of you again this year, and making new friends to boot. You each have blessed my songwriting journey with a special "I get it, Dude".
R Klein - Maryland


"What a unique and fulfilling experience, Thanks Scott and Jen for sharing your gifts so generously."

A. Deitz - Maryland
