The Summer Academy of the Rencontres Musicales de Noyers.

The quality of the artists, the limited number of students per class, the beauty of Noyers, and the warm welcome, encourage fruitful work in a festive atmosphere.

All courses and internships take place in the medieval village of Noyers.

The association accommodates students who require a homestay. The midday and evening meals, prepared by village restaurateurs, are taken together, in the company of the teachers, near the teaching places. Students are invited free of charge to all Festival concerts.


The Masterclasses are aimed at musicians of higher or professional level whether they are completing advanced musical studies or starting a career as an artist. There is no age limit. Each class has a maximum of 12 students.

Renowned artists, and for violin, flute, and song, an experienced accompanist, guide students for three hours divided into several lessons, in the appropriation of one or more works, for example for a competition. The schedule is established on the first day of each masterclass. The alternation of individual lessons (the public is admitted) and personal work, allows everyone to progress and be exposed to other musicians. For pianists, pianos will be available for practice between lessons. A student concert takes place at the end of each masterclass. It is offered free of charge to the Festival public.

In July 2021, five masterclasses are offered:

  • Violin with Olivier CHARLIER 4-9 July and end of course concert on 10 July at 11am.
  • Flute with Juliette HUREL 11-16 July and end of course concert on 17 July at 4pm.
