This Workshop was amazing, awesome, heart touching, … take any word for being deeply touched and for me it fits. Main reason is, that Peter Eldridge is a wonderful piano-player, a wonderful singer, a wonderful composer and arranger and also a wonderful teacher. If you work with him, you notice a very deep abandon to your own way of going around with music. He is so sensitive to notice your wishes, skill sets, your favorites and your brakes and your barriers to develop. He has a perfect mix of being facing and preparing for his pupils and at the same time being decisive and clear.
I deeply know, what I’m writing about, because I’ve been a teacher for about 40 years.
To work with Peter means such a big benefit for singers, composers and arrangers. I enjoyed so much the work with him. I learned a lot and I returned with lots of positive inspirations!

What a great year!! Special thanks to Flavia and all of the singers who made these workshops beautiful and memorable!
We will take good care of you!
Another reason for the success of this workshop for me were these amazing participants. They all were so different and each of them in his own way friendly, loving and intense. I so much hope, that I can meet again each of them.
The rooms, where we lived and the room, where we worked and had breakfast, lunch and dinner was fantastic. The whole location is a dream. Flavia is the most friendly and helpful host, I ever met! She’s an angel. Well, I think, you notice, that I’m absolutely and totally enthusiastic about having had the luck, to be part of this wonderful workshop. ~ Martin G. 2019
It was a marvelous weekend, with interesting people, warm welcomes and very inspiring musical exchanges. The accommodations and food were incredible. Peter was so generous, insightful and good spirited that he was able to bring out the music within us. It was truly a magnificent experience. I would surely do it again! -Kiko Pereira
As a person who works at the convergence of activism, spirituality, and the arts, I experience Rhiannon and her work as the perfect medicine for me in these times. Vocal improvisation grounds me and strengthens my voice, my body, my gratitude, my creativity, and my courage for the times we live in. I consider her work a form of alchemical activism, growing beauty, presence, and intention for the healing of our world. ~Barbara Ford
