For me, the double bass has been a passion since childhood. Having discovered the instrument at the music school of Agde I had the chance to integrate, after a few months of practice, the class of Jean Ané (double bass soloist of the orchestra opera of Montpellier) at the conservatory of Perpignan. I had the opportunity and the luck to meet in some training courses of famous teachers such as Bernard Cazauran, Alberto Boccini, Théotime Voisin... Having done all my studies with him, Jean Ané made me join the French Youth Orchestra in 2019 and 2020, then the CNSMD of Lyon in the class of Cédric Carlier in 2020, where I am still studying. Attracted by orchestral music, I have been in the habit of taking competitions for internships since I was young. The EUYO had become a dream for a few years, so I had set myself the goal of integrating this prestigious orchestra, promising to give myself the means I needed, I worked to achieve my desires and reach the expectations of this orchestra. Today, very happy to have joined the EUYO, I am more than ever invested in my musical life to be able to make my passion my job.
