    Gemma Sugrue

    Ra Wilson

    Coach for Holistic Songwriting Academy

    Ra is coming to be by your side, giving you gentle guidance throughout the songwriting process, so you can finally make those songs real,  which you've only dreamed of.

    As a coach for Holistic Songwriting Academy, he shares his hard earned experience and skills with the students, and guides them through the process towards songwriting mastery.

    He has been writing songs since the birth of the internet. After years of classical guitar noodling and flittering though jazz school he found himself signed to Universal and then Warner where he wrote charting songs that gathered quite a lot of streams . Ra is a trained Speech Level singer and has toured (festivals and headline shows) in over 20 countries.

    Bruno Rocha

    Coach for Holistic Songwriting Academy

    Bruno is ready to guide you from breakthrough to breakthrough on this paradisal island, letting go of the everyday anxieties and stresses that keep you from completing the songs you were born to make.

    As an HSA coach, he uses his knowledge to help students in completing their music projects, from the early ideas to fully finished songs.

    He started writing songs in the early 2000s, first as a hobby, but in 2008 some of those songs were released on a solo album. In 2012 he released another album with his band Box, which completely comprised of original songs he wrote. A new EP was released a few years later. During Covid Bruno took online mixing/mastering courses, and now releases songs 100% written, produced, mixed and mastered by himself.

    Robert Lanting

    Coach for Holistic Songwriting Academy

    Robert will get your eyes twinkling. He has blocked his calendar for our joint days on Tenerife, ready to make this an unforgettable experience for you with his years of experience as both a music coach, co-writer and Student Happiness Manager at Holistic Songwriting.

    Nils Schink

    Event-manager & Video Producer

    Nils will make you jump for joy, as he rustles up the most revitalizing Music Workation for you, as HSC's event-manager.

    As a photographer, Nils will ensure you leave Tenerife with professional photos of yourself, to use as you please for your social media and your press kit. 

    He has been with Holistic Songwriting since the very beginning of HSA. Starting out as a self-taught video editor, he now runs his own media production business “New Light Productions”, specialized in creating high-quality online programs.

    Chris Lautemann


    Chris probably won't make you cry, but that's fine. Your experience on Tenerife will be one for the ages nonetheless. 

    He has experience in virtually all styles of music: from Rap to Techno, playing Jazz Trumpet, composing counterpoint exercises at University and singing in an indie band, his love for music has led him to unexpected places - and successes.

    He launched and sold a successful underground record label, became the ghost-interview-writer for some of the dance-scene's biggest artists and co-wrote many songs as a lyricist - one of which was recently licensed for GTA Online. 

    He'll be happy to share his thoughts and ideas how you can succeed in music - and write awesome songs with you!


    Is my skill-level sufficient for this camp and the co-writing sessions?

    Book a call now and together we will figure out if you are ready for the experience or if you'd benefit to join one of our online courses before joining the camp.

    Do I need a visa to enter the Country?

    If you are from the United States or a member state of the European Union you definitely don't need a visa: here's a list of all countries that do NOT need a visa to enter: https://www.immigrationspain.es/en/countries-that-need-visa-to-enter-spain/. If your country is on the list: nothing to worry about.

    Should I have attended the Holistic Songwriting Academy before joining?

    It is not required that you are a member of the Holistic Songwriting Academy, though of course it is beneficial if you are and have already stepped-up your songwriting game.

    What are the options for accommodation?

    You can decide between a single room for more private freedom or team-up with another artist in a shared room for 2 to connect and build new friendships!

    Are there any Covid regulations I should look out for?

    At this moment, there are no more covid regulations for entering the country. You might wanna check with your local authorities before you travel just to make sure nothing changed, but right now, there's nothing to worry about. The only thing is you still need to wear masks on public transport here at the moment so maybe bring one just in case.

    Are you ready to live this experience?

    We can't wait to see you there!
