The piano and Axel Lenarduzzi is a relationship that had its first apotheosis, in the mythical city of Rome, with the Higher Diploma of Perfection, from the National Superior Academy Santa Cecilia in the class of Sergio Perticaroli. Mark of a desire to confront multiple methods and sensitivities, in order to then better transmit. Indeed for him, being a musician, performer, pedagogue, is an opportunity for openness, for self-discovery, for the human being… Thus, alongside his piano journey, he nurtured literary and philosophical affections.
Before the Roman finale, his musical apprenticeship began at the conservatory of Asnières, followed by the National Regional Conservatory of Boulogne-Billancourt, the National Regional Conservatories of Montpellier, and Paris. He worked with Bruno Rigutto, Pascal Devoyon, Gery Moutier, before joining the class of Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels which was an opportunity to discover the Del Pueyo method and the educational and artistic work of Marie Jaëll. His curiosity and his study of musical and bodily gestures led him to an advanced practice of Tai-chi.
