I started playing the clarinet at the age of 7 in a small music school in Auvergne (center of France), then if the “Conservatoire National de Région” in Clermont-Ferrand. My teacher there was Béatrice Berne. Then I moved to Paris and worked with Florent Héau and Michel Arrignon.
At the same time, I regularly went to summer camps with great french clarinetists, such as Jean-François Verdier, Arnaud Leroy, Romain Guyot, Jacques Di Donato or Jérôme Julien-Laferrière.
From 2003 to 2005, I studied in CeFEdeM (Centre de Formation des Enseignants de la Musique) near Paris. I graduated with my degree in clarinet teaching.
I teached for 10 years in Paris and around, and I am now clarinet teacher in the Conservatoire in Saint-Claude (Jura, France).
As a performer, chamber music is what I like the most, but playing in various orchestras is a great experience too!
