Yosemite Songwriting Retreat celebrates the craft of songwriting and the art of performing original songs. Our mission is to support songwriters of all skill levels and genres, create an inspiring and supportive community and provide a safe space where individuals can express themselves through music.

We achieve this through classes, workshops, mentoring, performance and recording opportunities at a location that provides an environment conducive to creativity and relaxation.

We chose instructors that are not only great musicians but also gifted educators. These individuals bring diverse skills and perspectives to teach practical skills through stimulating curriculum. Previous instructors include Eliza Gilkyson, Laurie Lewis, Peter Rowan, Terri Roche and Joe Craven.

The retreat takes place every year during the first weekend in October. Any one 18 years old and over may participate.  Previous experience with songwriting is welcome but not necessary. Find out more and register today at the retreat website.
