Collaborate with professionals who have sold millions of records

Spend the week learning advanced songwriting techniques and putting them into practice every day in co-writing sessions. These sessions are guided by our hit songwriters who will work closely with you throughout the writing process. Learn the secrets of the industry, find out how to take your songs further than before, and discover how to make a fulfilling and rewarding career out of songwriting.

Write with a multi platinum hit songwriter for a whole day

And here’s the gold dust. During your week in Spain you’ll get to spend an entire day writing with one of our award winning hit songwriter mentors with a proven track record writing for the greats. You may write one song, you may write two, but you can be sure it’s going to be a potential hit, and just having their name on your song will open doors you may have been knocking on for years.

Write songs for current chart-topping artists

Throughout the week, we’ll keep you up to date with the artists who are currently on the lookout for new songs. You’ll be able to learn how to work on your songs via a brief from these artists, getting guidance from our mentors throughout.

Improve your songwriting skills with filmed live sessions

Each night during the playback and feedback sessions, our camera crew will film every new song as a live performance, so you’ll have an incredible memento to remember the trip by. After you’ve performed, all four  mentors will give you invaluable tips on how to continue crafting your song to make it the very best it can be.

Take a break from writing in one of the most beautiful locations on the planet

Although the retreat is a fantastic learning experience, it’s not all work, work, work. One of the keys to successful songwriting is busting through the stress and relaxing when writing. Not only does this remove writer’s block and other barriers to writing; it also reminds you that music should be fun. That’s why we spend time chilling out by the pool, relaxing with a party night and experience a few other surprises along the way! We’ll also have on-site chefs that prepare breakfast, lunch and evening meals which we’ll be eating fiesta-style in our very own street!

The venue is the perfect setting to relax, get away from it all and let yourself be inspired by the character, charm and tranquillity of this incredible opportunity.


What’s included on the course?

We’ll cover your accommodation and food, but you’ll have to plan your flights. We would sort your travel for you if we could, but since we have songwriters joining us from around the world, managing the travel for every member would be extremely complicated (if not impossible!).

Can I get my own room or do I have to share?

You can book your own room, but you’ll need to let us know in advance so we can ensure there’s space. Please get in touch with us by email [email protected]

How do I book a place on the retreat?

Start by emailing us at [email protected]. Then you’ll be invited to have an admissions interview over Zoom with our student director who will answer any questions you may have and ask you about your music and songwriting background. Shortly after the interview you will be contacted by TSA letting you know whether you were successful in gaining a place on the retreat.
