I can’t say enough about my experience with the American Conservatory of Paris. As someone who was new to playing the cello, an adult learner, and on top of that new to the city as well, I was extremely lucky to find a conservatory that was sending a teacher to my doorstep and saving me the struggle of traversing a foreign city with a cello. That being said, the Saturday chamber music group was a wonderful part of my routine during my first year; the sheet music was adapted to my level and it was great for my self-esteem to play publicly, even with less than a year’s worth of lessons. ACP is a supportive community and I was really pleased with how things were adapted with COVID-19. Highly recommend!
Of all the lucky breaks I got when I moved to Paris, among the luckiest was finding the American Conservatory of Paris.
The American Conservatory of Paris is an absolute treasure for passionate music learners in Paris – adults and children alike. I am a busy professional and started learning the flute in my late 20s. I spent a couple of years self-learning and with various teachers during the summer holidays. My progress was slow. It wasn’t until I finally discovered ACP in 2015 did my music journey really take off. I was lucky to be taken on by Erika as a student. Together, we set ABRSM grade exam goals and weekend regular lessons at home. With the accompaniment of Erika, we are working towards ABRSM Grade 6 in 2021 which feels like a beautiful dream come true. ACP’s agility ensures that learning logistics are seamless whether face-to-face at home, on-site, or online, and ensures consistent progress. Thanks to improved techniques, the joy of expressing emotions through music is a fulfilling and indescribable joy. Erika is a talented teacher who has the perfect balance between empathetic motivation and strong technical discipline. She also has a wonderful personality, incredible drive, and has become a dear friend for me over the years. I am grateful for this wonderful community and cannot recommend The American Conservatory of Paris enough.
