The Academy

Musique à Flaine is a summer academy for young pre-professional musicians, soloists or chamber music groups, who are interested in working with great masters.

Approximately 90 students attend each academy. Each instrumentalist receives five 45-to 60-minute lessons during their stay at the academy. Chamber music ensembles have classes almost every day.

Accompanying pianists are available throughout the entire academy during lessons, rehearsals and recitals. Solo instrumentalists can also take part in chamber music sessions with other participants if they so wish, and each group receives lessons.

Musique à Flaine makes approximately one hundred studios and 25 pianos available to the trainees for work sessions in buildings that are separate from the accommodation areas.

Free concerts are arranged throughout the academy. Chamber music and solo instrumental recitals take place at the end of the academy. All performances are recorded and trainees receive an internet link to their performances, or a CD upon request.

Minors (under 18-years old) must be accompanied by an adult.

Luthiers and bow-makers, as well as piano tuners work in Flaine during the entire academy session. Piano harmonisation and luthier workshops will be scheduled during the session.

Do-in sessions are held every morning, and each trainee may book an individual shiatsu appointment.

Travel, housing and meals

Bus transfers to and from Flaine are available on arrival and departure days. These run to and from Cluses train station and Geneva International Airport (no charge; reservation required).

All trainees have comfortable accommodations near their lessons (these range from bachelor suites to 3-room suites). There is a family suite available for rent. Each flat has a kitchen; bedding is provided. Trainees who wish to do so may share accommodation costs with roommates.

The academy fee includes lunch daily for all participants at the restaurant La Perdrix Noire; organised by Musique à Flaine. Trainees provide their own breakfast and evening meal (there are kitchens in the apartments; supermarkets in Flaine).
