WELCOME TO LE CENTRE DES MUSIQUES DIDIER LOCKWOOD

Driven by a desire to transmit and defend jazz and improvised music, the musicians Didier Lockwood, Benoit Sourisse, André Charlier and the director Chantal Charlier, create in 2000 this institution of higher education, in order to accompany young musicians to professional life.

OUR PROGRAMS

As an institution of higher education, the CMDL offers different courses that allow each musician, whatever his level and his path, to find the program that corresponds to his attends. Thanks to the partnerships established with the Pôle Supérieur Paris Boulogne-Billancourt (PSPBB), the University of Evry Val d’Essonne, the CRD Val Maubuée in Noisiel, the National Federation of Schools of Influence Jazz and Contemporary music (FNEIJMA) , the school is authorized to provide initial or continuing professional qualifications. Although private, it applies similar tuition fees to French higher education centers.

PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS AND PASSIONATE TEACHERS

Between creation, album releases, scenes and tours, the members of the teaching team share the fruit of their experiences with new generations of musicians. Over a year, the CMDL invites more than 80 professional musicians to complete its team of 10 referent teachers. The visiting professor then brings his own approach according to his path and his sensitivity.

INTERNATIONAL

Since international exchanges have become essential in the training of young musicians, the CMDL adheres to the Erasmus Charter and develops partnerships with the most prestigious international music schools.
