Testimonials from past piano retreats:
"I attended the Icicle Creek Music Center's Adult Piano Retreat for my first time last Sept. Being somewhat short of confidence, especially playing solo piano, I emerged from this experience able to play a solo performance. Regardless of your level of playing, this retreat is non competitive, supportive and FUN. I'm going back in May."
"Total immersion in all-things-piano for four days at beautiful Icicle Creek was a wonderful experience! Great lessons and classes and the camaraderie and support of fellow piano players gave me, a relative beginner, the confidence to play before an audience."
