Frequently Asked Questions
Q.When should I plan to be there?
A.Since all three days will be full-day trainings, and we typically go over time with jamming and Q&A’s, we highly recommend that you fly in the day before and fly out the day after so that you don’t miss anything.
Q.When will we receive the daily schedule?
A.We will email you the daily schedule six weeks in advance of the Retreat start date. On that schedule we’ll have details of the topics that Martin will teach plus info on any surprise guest instructors!
Q.Why is there a $97 deposit required?
A.Seats are limited and if you do not show up, you’re taking a spot from someone else that could have been there. When you show up to the event, your deposit will be refunded. If you do not show up to the event, your deposit will be forfeited due to expense incurred we still had to cover.
Q.What if I paid the deposit and now cannot attend?
A.You can get the deposit refunded up until 6/15/16. After that, we cannot refund your deposit because we will not have time to refill your seat. If you cannot make it and/or want to transfer your ticket to someone else, you must contact our Customer Care Team so they know who to change the ticket over to at email@example.com.
Q.Can I bring a guest/assistant/spouse/etc with me?
A.Yes, you can purchase a non-participation ticket for $97. They must have a deposit put down as well in order to attend. Click on the Non-Participant button below to book their place.
Q.What should I bring with me?
A.We recommend bringing your guitar, notebooks, pens and small snacks to hold you over.
Q.Are meals provided?
A.We will have light refreshments, but Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are NOT provided. The venue has a cafe and restaurant and there are many great restaurants that you can walk, drive or Uber to.
Q.Will the Retreat be recorded? What if I don’t go – can I still watch the recording?
A.Yes, the content sections of the Retreat will be recorded, but the hands-on Workshop and jamming time will not be posted, simply because it’s a room full of people talking, working and playing.
Q.Are there hotels nearby?
A.Yes there is, and you will find a downloadable fact sheet on this page. The hotels we suggest are all near where the Retreat classes and jam sessions will be held.
Q.What if I have a question not listed here?
A.If you have additional questions, please contact Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is available to help you.
