Songwriter Getaways

Songwriter Getaways

Escape the distractions of your busy life. Develop your craft and energize your writing with a Songwriting Getaway. Come away with us on one of our upcoming songwriting retreats and enjoy plentiful writing time, insightful feedback and an encouraging community.

The Toronto Songwriting School hosts multiple songwriting retreats throughout the year. These songwriting retreats give songwriters the opportunity to build their skills through songwriting workshops, original song feedback, group sing-alongs, one-on-one mentoring, communal meals, and plenty of free time for you to write songs and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Our songwriter getaways are appropriate for all levels of songwriters – even if you don’t play an instrument. The workshops help develop new skills and songwriting ideas, along with plenty of supportive feedback from the group. You will return from our songwriter getaways with renewed inspiration and a handful of new songs. Register to join an upcoming songwriting workshop today or join our mailing list to receive updates on future getaways and other Toronto Songwriting School news.
