About this event

The Yosemite Songwriting Retreat celebrates the craft of songwriting and the art of performing original songs. Our mission is to support songwriters at all skill levels and in any musical genre, creating an inspiring and supportive community that provides a safe space where individuals can express themselves through their music.

Join us for this unique event designed to connect members of the songwriting community, developing our art craft. This three-day retreat includes a faculty concert, classes, mentor sessions and performance opportunities with Joe Craven, MorganEve Swain, Johnny Franco, Gail Dreifus, Adam Burns, David Budries and more. The registration fee include all classes, events, and meals (Friday eve through Sunday eve.)

  • We kick off the weekend on Friday night with dinner and a concert where our instructors will introduce themselves, describe their classes and excite you with their performances.
  • Enjoy inspiring classes throughout the weekend, focusing on various aspects of songwriting.
  • Participants may book one-on-one mentor sessions (20 minutes) with one of our instructors to help you with a specific song or part.
  • A limited number of 20 minute recording sessions are available Saturday and Sunday afternoons (at the same time as the mentor sessions)
  • When you’ve got something you’re ready to share, you can sign up to perform at one of our open mic sessions. Whether you're writing your first song or seeking ideas for your next album, you'll find community and inspiration at the Yosemite Songwriting Retreat. Come and take your songwriting to the next level.
