2023 program of the Saline royale Academy

Discover our 2023 classical music teachers.


Academy from 2 to 9 April 2023

From 2 to 9 April 2023, the Saline royale Academy welcomes you for a new session of exceptional masterclasses. Come and progress in viola with Kim Kashkashian, in flute with Mathieu Dufour, in piano with Jean-Philippe Collard and in violin with Kristof Barati.

These prestigious masters are recognised for their quality as teachers and performers. They relay their passion, their professional experience, and their advice to help students reveal their talent.

This academy is aimed at student musicians and singers from music schools (HEMU, Guildhall, CNSM, etc.) or instrumentalists at the beginning of their career.

In order to help students participate in our academies, scholarships will be available. These will be requested at the time of registration and will be awarded according to criteria such as the student's background, project or motivation.

Three types of events will mainly punctuate the weeks of our academics. 

  • Daily and individual classes allowing them to learn every day from our teachers. These classical music classes are given in dedicated rooms, all equipped with piano. Students can be accompanied by a pianist if they wish.
  • Concerts are held every evening, allowing students to perform in front of an audience if they wish.
  • Two concerts, one for the academicians and one for the teachers, are organized at the end of each academy. Open to the public, they offer students a new opportunity to test themselves and prepare for future performances.

During the academy, students can stay at the Saline Royale's *** hotel and can eat on site thanks to our catering system. Allergies and diets are taken into account in order to adapt to everyone.

Programme of the week

  • The reception of the students by the Saline royale Académie team and the teachers takes place on Sunday late afternoon.
  • Classes take place from Monday morning to Friday afternoon and student concerts from Tuesday to Friday.
  • The end-of-term concerts (students and teachers) and the graduation ceremony are held on Saturday during the day.
  • The students’ departure is scheduled for Sunday during the day.
Registration calendar for the academy, which will be held from 2 to 9 April 2023 - Registration closed for Kashkashian, Dufour and Barati

Application opening: October 10th 2022

Our accompanying pianists

Present throughout the academies, the accompanying pianists are recruited for their technique, their knowledge of the repertoires selected by the students and their experience. They accompany the classes, but also the recorded master classes, auditions and end-of-academy concerts.
