FAQ



What will I gain from this experience?

     Quantum Sound Artist Retreats are unlike any other music school or online tutorial series. While the tangible objective is for each artist to walk away with a new song or EP they feel great about, the lessons learned and relationships made during the program are lifelong treasures. Artists can learn technical skills from a multitude of resources or tutorials, but this curriculum takes artist development to a much deeper level in exploring each creator's unique sounds within a supportive community environment.

     Like most things in life, you will only get out what you put in, so it's up to YOU to follow through with all assignments and opportunities for growth that the retreat provides. Being pushed outside of your comfort zone and opening to new ideas may not always be easy, but the results are well worth the effort.



Do I have to use a specific DAW in order to participate? What if I'm still a beginner?

     The only prerequisites for this program are a means to record and share your music (any DAW will do, but Ableton is recommended), and willingness to learn no matter what your experience level is! This retreat is all about making the most of the time, skills, and resources you currently have -- NOT waiting around until you have that new synth or more knowledge to "begin" sometime in the future.


Are accommodations provided?

Yes, all artists will have a room and shared bathrooms in the Artist House near Ketchum, ID (location revealed following registration). Meals will not be provided, but there will be opportunities for grocery store runs to keep food costs efficient, as well as options to dine out. 

Please note that space is limited to 6 artists to ensure the quality and personalization of the experience for participants. Because of this, early registration is strongly recommended.



What is the program cost? 

Participation for the 2023 retreat is $1499, with payment plans available for those who would like to pay monthly. This fee includes accommodations and ground transportation for retreat activities, but does not include meals or travel to/from the retreat.

How do I get to Sun Valley?

Ketchum and Sun Valley are accessible by car or flight. Airport shuttles and taxis are available from Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey, Idaho, which is only 12 miles south of Ketchum.

Car rental is suggested for artists flying into Boise International Airport, as private transport or Ubers from Boise can be expensive. If you are able to, it’s best to fly in to Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey.

Note: There are extremely few Uber/Lyft drivers in the area, so pre-booking your airport taxi through a local company is encouraged. Once you’ve arrived, the town is very walkable, and transport will be provided for retreat activities.
