The 5th Annual Mountain Recording Retreat
Workshops, Mentoring, Golf, and Pie!
May 17-22, 2020 Capon Springs, West Virginia
The Mountain Recording Retreat is intentionally not like anything else. It is far more than recording workshops. It is about community, music, and great sound. It is five days learning, listening, and relaxing in a community made up of world-class mentors and fellow music makers. Each year a out 80-90% of the attendees sign up again for the following year.
We will have daily recording workshops, listening panels, one-on-one mentoring, DIY gear building workshops, and bingo where you can win prizes from the Capon shop..
Learn from World Class Mentors
Our mentors this year include Ronan Chris Murphy, John Rodd, Catharine Wood, Fett, Chris Kincaid. Check out our Mentors Page for more information on them,
Each day will feature workshops by various mentors and throughout the week there will be listening sessions where you can have your music evaluated by the mentors and other participants, but there is also time carved out to socialize, collaborate and enjoy the beautiful resort. Meals are served family style and all of our attendees and mentors share meals together.
Lectures and Listening Panels
We are still working on the schedule for 2020, but previous workshops have included: DIY Mastering, Mixing Workflow, Step by Step mixing workflow, Breathing Life into Virtual Instruments, Behind the Scenes of an Orchestral Session at Abbey Road, Intro to Synthesis, Vocal Production….
