Mathieu Rouquié

Modern, historical, baroque cello • Individual lessons, chamber music lessons, ensemble, string quartet • Independent teacher • Etoy: Les Ateliers de la Côte (LAC)




I offer cello courses (modern and baroque), for all levels, "from 7 to 77 years old" and courses in CHAMBER MUSIC, ensemble, string quartet. In my classes, you will have the opportunity to listen to your specific tastes and develop them, but also to glimpse other necessary qualities, such as crucial notions of musical language, for example, or improvisation.

My teaching includes practice on the so-called 'modern' cello, and also on the so-called 'historical' or 'ancient' instruments. It favours a direct oral transmission, 'chest to chest', as if to return to the sources of learning. You will find a know-how stemming from an ancestral tradition. Discover this warm instrument, an authentic voice towards learning about oneself and the outside world, the infinite perceptions and sensitivities of each one!

We will work in my workshop, located in the unique and dynamic setting of the Ateliers de la Côte à Etoy: an ideal place for an extraordinary artistic activity.

The price of the private lessons includes the possibility of performing in public once a year, during a small concert organised by me, where everyone comes to bring what they have worked on and then meet for a drink.

Cello ensemble sessions are also available and open to all, but are optional. They take place on Friday evenings, once a month. Do not hesitate to contact me for any information.

I will be happy to accompany you in your musical journey.
