I started at the age of 9 in Perpignan, France with Doris Stiegler. My uncle played the musette accordion, and I told my mother that I wanted to learn to play as well. But in reality I saw the light in 2008, after two weeks of classes with professor Jacques Mornet and composer Franck Angelis, in a town close to Clermont Ferrand, France. That was when I knew I wanted to dedicate myself to music and left everything to pursue it full-time.
After those classes with Jacque, I went to an advanced-curriculum conservatory, ESMD, in Lille, France, to take classes with professor Vincent Lhermet. Now I’m studying for my master’s at the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
Something like an audio engineer or a computer techie.
Here in France, folk is pretty typical. Although contemporary pieces are common too, and I work with both. I prefer modern music, not jazz, but contemporary music. I like to work with other musicians as well, and I play chamber music with cellists, violinists, singers, etc…
I participate in various groups playing chamber music, for example I worked with Flora Guichard, a violinist, in a duet, and played violin and cello with the Trio LUBIN. We played pieces by Schubert, Cavanna, Hersant, Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla…
I also loved participating in a theater company called ´Le Festin Anne Laure Liégeois´ working with a piece titled 'Les Soldats'. I like doing projects with other disciplines, working with actors, ballerinas… I always discover many new things and there are always very very interesting moments.

For years I’ve taught music to children, which I plan to continue. Next year, I will finish my master’s program. After that, I don’t know what will happen (laughs), but I think I would like to return to the north of France, to Lille. I hope to continue playing in as many concerts as now, at the least.
