classical guitar training PrograM

The training program is built around two Roland Dyens’compositions for guitar ensemble : « SOLEILS LEVANTS » and « BRESILS »


  • Collective practice 

Grouped together in ensemble music, students will work with Laurent Blanquart on Soleils Levants (2008 – Productions d’Oz) and Orestis Kalampalikis on Brésils (2002 – Lemoine Editions). The scores will be sent to the students before the training program (Thanks to the Editions Lemoine and Productions d’Oz who offer the musicals scores)

  • Individual Courses OR CHAMBER MUSIC

Students can work with their teachers on their chosen music (specified during the inscription) in individual courses or in chamber music. For the students who choose the chamber music practice, we can put them in contact according to their level and musical tastes before the training.

  • Improvisation (optional) – with Orestis Kalampalikis

« I used to improvise, it’s a supersitition. It’s a barometer for ambiance, acoustic, I can’t avoid it, it’s the best way to open, to enter in a recital. » Roland Dyens

The main goal of this workshop is to introduce students to improvisation with relevant and simple forms, prioritizing the work on fundamentals : intention, move, expression, repetition and variation. Thanks to his formation with Roland Dyens, Orestis Kalampalikis will guide students through this exercise.
