Music for People Retreat
For MfP graduates and experienced MfP players

New Date To Be Announced

Syracuse University – Setnor School of Music

Come try something new—a Music for People retreat! This weekend will include lots of time and space for free play, plus MfP grads offering elective topics and local musicians giving workshops on Indian music, keyboard improvisation, and steel band. There will be chances to record in Syracuse University’s Newhouse Studio throughout the weekend as well.

Join Syracuse’s growing Music for People community, including our MLP members, for a weekend of music and exploration. We will have two large spaces set up throughout the day on Saturday: one for free play and one for specific topics. Three local musicians will offer workshops in Indian music, keyboard improvisation, and steel drum band. MfP grads and experienced players will be invited to offer topics of their choice as well.

On Friday evening and Sunday morning, we will offer recording sessions in Syracuse University’s Newhouse Studio, at no extra charge, as well as possible opportunities for grads to help facilitate workshops in the community.

This is a tuition-free event, co-facilitated by the participants.

Please email Alina at if you are interested in facilitating an elective session or a community workshop during the weekend.

For out-of-town participants, several Syracuse hotels are near the university campus. Within walking distance: The Sheraton Syracuse University. Within a 5-minute drive: The Genesee Grande Hotel, the Parkview Hotel, or the Crowne Plaza.
