Course

A whole journey that began on a sensorial nevel with the professional environment of her parents pastry chefs. «The smell of caramel, the pounding of the cookie cutter would make me go down the stairs so fast to taste the blond, sweet and crispy nougatine falls. A delight!»

Happiness to paint from kindergarten, to paint, to work the stone, the earth, to create jewels… happiness to dance too !

Élisabeth Lenain trained in classical music. From the age of 5, 14 years later she obtained a unanimous first prize with congratulations and special mention at the Musica Piano Competition presided over by Jean Manuel, member of the jury at the Conservatoire National de Paris.

To transmit this art in a lively and playful way, she followed the Martenot pedagogical training courses for piano and the FM in Paris and Rennes, choir conducting courses, training courses for the cultural and artistic development of young children with « Enfance et Musique ».

Aware of the importance of attitude in the practice of instrumental playing, she followed the awareness sessions through Feldenkrais movement with François Combeau and then with Françoise Legalloudec during her training in Rennes. She learnt active relaxation during her training in Paris.
