Because, you should treat yourself to something special, something serene, something relaxing and revelatory at the same time. You can’t imagine how beneficial or restorative it is to your spirit, your mind and body, to plop down on this gorgeous lake, study and play music for hours on end, and at the same time elect at any moment to rest, walk, canoe, swim, worship the water lily, dragonfly, or the sunfish. Bird watch, explore the Rideau Trail, or simply dote upon the lake. Trust me, this is an extraordinary place.

And while you’re in this idyllic place, let theory rain down on your head! Saturate yourself with the intricacies of jazz theory, improvisation, and music-making while grooving to nature’s inimitable rhythm. This is the best way to learn, immersed in a tranquil, contemplative setting where there is no pressure or obligation to connect to the outside world. A year’s worth of theory in 4 days. There is no interruption to the flow. Only pauses to catch your breath, relish good food, converse with your fellow cabin mates, and appreciate your surroundings.

      Theory raining down on my head? Is that like standing outside in a hailstorm? Seriously, it sounds amazing. I’d love to be there.
