Paris, France

Paris, November 14-17 2019


This November the institute returns to the Conservatoire Slave de Musique in Bagnolet, an eastern Parisian suburb.

This institute is bilingual. Fraser is fluent in both English and French, and uses the participant's native tongue wherever possible. ATMs are and lectures are bilingual where necessary. Fraser teaches on the Conservatoire's concert Steinway, and numerous practice facilities are available.

Some activities may take place at the Cuvier studios, just a few streets south of the Conservatoire.

The 12th Parisian Alan Fraser Piano Institute is open to ALL INTERESTED PIANISTS:

  • students who wish to improve their sound and agility
  • amateurs who wish to feel more in command of the instrument
  • teachers who want new ways of teaching technique to their students
  • professionals who wish to hone their skills to the highest possible level.

   A lesson





The Conservatoire is located in Bagnolet at 59, rue Victor Hugo, 93170 Bagnolet, between Métro stations Robespierre (Line 9) and Galliéni (Line 3).

ATTENTION: If you arrive at Robespierre métro, do not head south into Montreuil, where there is another Victor Hugo Avenue. On the map at the entrance to the station, you will see a Victor Hugo Avenue which is not the one you are looking for. This station is in Montreuil, and the Robespierre street next to the station leads south into Montreuil. You need to head north into Bagnolet.

Take rue Arsène Chereau and continue to Place de la Fraternité. After this square, rue Arsène Chéreau becomes rue Robespierre (this is the right one!). Continue on Robespierre and take the first left onto rue Victor Hugo.

Look at this map of the area around métro Robespierre, Montreuil to orient yourself. Ave. Victor Hugo is in the top left hand corner of this map.

If you foresee some difficulty in finding your way from the metro to the Conservatoire, one of our organizers can meet you at the station. Please arrange beforehand.

The Cuvier Studio is located in Montreuil at 34, rue Cuvier, Montreuil, between Métro stations Robespierre (Line 9) and Saint-Mandé (Line 1).



There are plenty of hotels in the area, and we also recommend airbnb.


Enjoy the almost unlimited possibilities for cuisine while you are in Paris.
