Artistic Director

Greetings and a warm welcome!

Nested in the Seine River valley west of Paris where the French Impressionist painters found their inspiration is the Château de Rangiport, which houses the Académie Internationale de Musique. Every summer during the first half of July, musicians from around the world gather here for two intense but fun-filled weeks of music-making and other activities that are unique to this program.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Piano workshop lessons with Emile Naoumoff
    Professor at Indiana University Bloomington , USA

  • Extra lessons with Simon Zaoui
  • Master classes and conferences provided by Composer, Yuko Uebayashi, vocalist, Jacques Loiseleur des Longchamps.

  • Catered meals served three times daily

  • Sightseeing tours of local landmarks such as Ravel's house in Monfort l'Amaury

  • Amenities include the Château's park bordering the Seine River for the exclusive use of the academy's students

  • Performances of students and faculty at Gargenville's church and the Château's park on Bastille Day

I invite you to take a look through our virtual photo album and savor some of the scenes from in and around the academy. This intimate musical retreat becomes the home for one big family, creating a lasting bond based on a non-competitive yet highly inspirational human, musical, and cultural atmosphere.

Our next academy will happen July 1 through 14, 2012. You can contact Mr. Denis Demoulin, the coordinator of the academy at to obtain information regarding daily, weekly, or complete session attendance.

Come experience the perfect blend of a French summer, great food, and music!
