Hi Steve. Many and sincere thanks for the workshop experience on the weekend. I had a real shift within myself and with my music, awesome. And I simply had a lot of fun! The other huge gift is the new friends I have made." Jeffrey.

You will take your music to a new level with workshops, one-on-one professional instruction, group sessions, and daily performance opportunities, all guided by experienced absolute top quality internationally acclaimed tutors.
“… a very big thanks for organising Winterbreak retreat just an awesome experience. I feel profoundly moved by the learning and self discovery --- who'd have known attending a music workshop, would result in such deep personal growth? I still feel a bit exhausted and simultaneously elated.... Your joyous, positive and somewhat cheeky personality and lousy (just poking you) sense of humour was just right to keep things running and light-hearted amongst all the serious business. Congratulations to you and all the tutors ?" Anne
