Accordionists friends,

Here are the dates of the next summer teaching residency, led by Lionel Suarez!

This year, from July 31 to August 3, we will be heading to the sublime Monts d'Aubrac and the village of Saint Hippolyte, where we will be welcomed in a place entirely dedicated to pedagogy: the Résidence Haut 2 Gammes.

Equipped classrooms, recording studio, performance hall, accommodation, catering, all in one place.

All you have to do is work!


Accordionist, composer, jazzman, arranger, director, producer, artistic director... How to draw up a list of all that he knows how to do and thus summarize a course as singular as abundant? But from Claude Nougaro to Richard Bona, from Jean Rochefort to the National Jazz Orchestra, through Michel Vuillermoz, André Minvielle, Didier Lockwood, Sylvain Luc, Charles Aznavour, Véronique Sanson, Renaud, Pierre Perret, Clotilde Courau, Art Mengo, Yaël Naim and so many others, we understand the eclecticism and the versatility of this subtle colorist who knew how to give to the accordion orchestral perfumes that we did not even imagine.


20 hours of masterclass with Lionel Suarez: 5 hours per day, from 10 am to 12:30 pm and from 2:30 pm to 5 pm (lecture in the morning, group in the afternoon)

With his multiple experiences on stage and in the studio, Lionel Suarez focuses his teaching on the use of the accordion in so-called "contemporary" music.

The art of accompaniment / Songs, readings, theater...
Groove, groove / Rhythm, Independence and metronomy
An orchestra in the hands / Harmony, orchestrations and arrangements
Jazz & improvised music / Improvisation, phrasing, vocabulary, language and conversation
