“All Together Now!” – An Ensemble & Performance Retreat

April 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


“I attended Janet’s guitar retreat Fall 2017.  The weekend was filled with guitar, singing, writing songs, learning songs, calm, and friendship in a nurturing and encouraging environment.  It was a much needed respite from day-to-day responsibilities.

I loved it so much that I signed up for the April 2018 retreat as soon as Janet announced it!

I wouldn’t miss it!”
– Elle DePaul Fisher

Last October I hosted my first retreat and everyone had an amazing experience

We did ensemble work playing songs by Tom Petty, Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Beatles and people had their first experience co-writing songs.  The results were AWESOME. We also added tools to people’s performing tool box and then got to practice those skills at our Saturday night open mike.

Our 2018 retreat will begin Saturday, April 14th at 10 a.m. until Sunday, April 15th at 3 p.m.

The retreat will be at Rolling Ridge Retreat & Conference Center in North Andover, Mass.  The house was built in the 1920s and is on the shore of Lake Cochichewick and is a 40 to 45 minute trip from the city.

During the weekend you’ll have the opportunity to play music with like-minded souls in a warm, fun environment.  People who participated in the last retreat have begun playing music together on their own and told me how delighted they are about being able to connect with other players.
