For those who love to spend a week making music in paradise with incredibly fun, talented and supportive people, Summersong Music Camp returns in January!  Thrilled to announce that the 18th Summersong gathering will take place from January 2 - 8, 2018 at the Tyalgum Ridge Retreat, outside of Murwillumbah, NSW!  

The 18th annual Summersong Music Camp registration is now open. Please use this link or visit the website for details of the fabulous faculty and the classes they’ll be teaching.

We’re very excited to retreat to our new inland/rainforest venue, not too far from Murwillumbah, Northern New South Wales. Our isolation in the bosom of Mount Warning will insure another intensive musical experience for folks at all levels of ability. Summersong is about loving music, making music, delving into one’s own potential and creativity in a group of sharing, caring, collaborative souls of all ages! It’s not at all about skill level; it’s more about being in an environment where you can stretch and fly with a supportive safety net at the ready! 

All teachers are selected for their uncanny ability to reap the hidden talents of all of us! This year we welcome Kristina Olsen (USA), Tony Backhouse (NZ), Gabriel Otu (Ghana/Australia), Mal Webb, Kathryn Riding, Shelley Brown, Jane Cornes, Karl Farren and Terri Rowe. There’ll be daily classes in Songwriting, Looping, African dance & drumming, several levels of Guitar, A Cappella Singing, Lyric Writing, Band Lab, Jamming, Body/Mind Impro, Vocal Techniques, and more!  

In the evenings we gather together for faculty concert, student performances, jams, music games, adventure and Celebrations.

The camp is residential with dorm, double private for couples, and powered camping for accom.

Partial Youth Scholarships are available for those ages 17 - 24; please contact to apply.
