All music retreats have been carefully designed to provide you with space, time and high quality tuition, in a supportive and welcoming atmosphere. We take care of everything so you are free to immerse yourself in learning, away from the distractions of daily life.

Each retreat is just €650 9early bird) for one week of full board ( B&B, lunch & dinner), endless tea & coffee, airport transfers & all tuition.

Please note! Flights & travel are not included.

All music retreats are limited to 8 people, meaning there will be plenty of one to one opportunities with the tutors. We have designed a varied programme with taught sessions, practice time, collaborative working, jam sessions, recording sessions and maybe performance at the end of the week!

In addition to the excellent teaching from our experienced tutors, you will benefit from the use of a fully equipped recording studio with engineer, opportunity to work with other musicians and time to focus on your music in a setting guaranteed to inspire you.


Our music retreats are full-board with accommodation in our impressive Dortoir, with everything you need for your stay. To make it as easy as possible, we provide bedding, towels, toiletries and even dressing gowns. All you need are a change of clothes and personal items.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are freshly prepared and served at a time to suit guests. Wherever possible you can eat in one of the dining areas in our beautiful gardens.

The carefully designed timetable, plenty of space and quiet hideaways allow for private practice and personal time throughout the week.
