Book now for 2024's Songwriting Retreat at the beautiful Brackenridge Country Retreat, 62 White Rock Road, Martinborough in the Wairarapa district of New Zealand. Set on 14 acres of farmland, we are using several well appointed cottages on site plus a tuition space.
Song to Stage Songwriting Retreat runs Tuesday January 9 - Friday January 12, 2024. All accommodation (own room), meals and tuition are included in the tariff. It's very comfortable and the food is great!
Song to Stage Songwriting Retreat is designed for songwriters who want to develop their songs and their songwriting skills. It covers frameworks that map the journey from idea to stage. From getting your songs to connect with an audience to how to best present your work, you'll get involved in practical writing sessions plus plenty of indepth tuition in a friendly, supportive environment. You'll share the air with like-minded people who are as keen and curious as you are to find out more about songwriting.
Come get you and your songs well and truly road ready in a beautiful setting free from daily distractions. It really works and the food is outstanding!
General tickets are now available. (Songwriting School members' discount also applies.)
International guests welcome.
Please get in touch with any queries.

"As always I love to share the brilliant, down to earth practical support that Charlotte Yates offers through her songwriting retreats and clinics not to mention the intelligence and beauty of her performance collaborations and breadth of music she’s written, produced and performs … if you wish to ignite, fine tune and practise your songwriting, the retreat will accelerate your progress. Working with Charlotte has provided me the support and space to gain confidence to song write, trust the creative process and my own stories and narrative … the lessons have informed my growth for 8 years now, without which I don’t think I’d be anywhere near the kind of satisfaction I get from writing now. Check the retreat out for you and if not this coming January I believe she has a songwriting school online which for accountability reasons and regular support in your growth, it is a fortifying and amazing pathway."
