Event Description

Intensive music courses are the perfect settings for young people to make effective progress in playing their instrument.

This is a small residential course (8-12 trainees) for young string musicians 9 to 17 years old (violinists or cellists), unaccompanied and supervised by our hosts in a family setting in secure surroundings.

The young people are accommodated in rooms shared between children of the same age and sex in two houses in a pretty village in Creuse, France. The 3 main meals are hearty, healthy and varied, and are supplemented with essential gourmet snacks for tea!

Every trainee is entitled each day of the course to two sessions of ½ hour one-to-one instrument tuition as well as two one-hour sessions of music ensemble for strings. At least one excursion will be organized during the week. The trainees will then give a concert on Friday, March 1st.

True to our well-known LMFL formula, it is possible to register for language tuition – EFL for English, FFL for French – as an option and if the parents are interested. There are 2 formulas :

  • Individual language lessons for 1 hour a day
  • Group classes (age and level) for 1 hour a day

How do you get to the course?

  • By road, driven by parents
  • By train
  • By plane

Unaccompanied youngsters can be picked up by us from both train stations, Limoges or La Souterraine, as well as from Limoges airport.

Those parents wishing to have their children travel in a supervised group from and/or to Paris are invited to indicate this when they sign up for the course.
