Pedagogy


The academies offer a differentiated teaching, adapted to each pedagogical project. Teachers provide individual instrument courses, which may be supplemented by group sessions. Trainees can observe all the other courses, with the agreement of teacher concerned.

High-level accompanists are available for instrumentalists in the limit of 3 sessions of 30 minutes per trainee. Additional sessions are offered as an option accessible now or during the masterclasses, subject to availability.

The places of course arranging only very few working studios, the trainees have to practise their instrument on their lodging place. The trainees wishing to work outside their accommodation have to register the option "piano working studio" (5h / day). Attention, the number of places is strictly limited.

Courses take place in the Conservatoire de Vincennes (98 rue de Fontenay. Metro line 1 - Station Château de Vincennes or RER A - Station Vincennes).
