We can celebrate the fact that the alliance Lied / Mélodie continues strongly and arouses a growing interest with the public. However, we have to recognise that the form in which this discipline is presented has not changed in centuries.

Over and above refinement as regards technical and stylistic questions, participants can try out and adopt new forms in the presentation of recitals, more suited to today’s public. The course is also suitable as preparation for Lied/Mélodie competitions.


The Music Academy of Villecroze values musical patronage and supports young musicians through its master-class program which includes free room and board. The only cost to participants is for transport by rail to Les Arcs-Draguignan or by plane to the Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport, from which we provide free shuttle service to Villecroze. Applicants with serious financial needs may request financial travel assistance; the Academy will examine the possibility of contributing to the price of the return ticket for these cases.
