Tuition and Deposit

We are working hard to make the retreats on the farm as reasonable as possible.  We have reduced the cost and hope that these options for ground transportation and dinners on your own will be helpful to you.

Upon acceptance, you may reserve your spot by paying a deposit, due at the time of acceptance.  The deposit holds your place in the retreat.
 If you pay your balance in full by  Oct. 15, 2020 you will save $500.
This is a firm deadline. Thank you for planning ahead.

Tuition until July 15, 2020 $3,000.00
Tuition after July. 15, 2020: $3,500.00

Tuition includes all workshop sessions (6 hours each day-note: no workshop sessions on arrival or departure day), lodging, lunch and 2 dinners - a welcome dinner and a closing dinner on the last night before departure. Breakfast every morning is on your own, we suggest you stop by one of the local markets upon arrival and pick up a few things for breakfast.

Car rentals are available at the airport.

Paying with PayPal

A word about tuition. 
Each workshop has unique expenses that can include lodging, food, studio rentals, guest artist fees, concert space rental, marketing, Rhiannon's artist fee and more. Rhiannon pays in advance (often more than a year in advance) to secure the necessary pieces for this program. Should a medical or family emergency impact a singer's participation Rhiannon will invite that singer to join another workshop.
Please note: no refunds are given.
