The Music Academy welcomes musicians that are regularly or occasionally supported by the Esperus Art Fund, as well as any other student or young artist who is interested in participating.

In collaboration with the festival l'Eté Musical en Bergerac, a cultural event created in 1988 that has become highly renowned for the quality of its concerts, its eclectism and its authenticity, the academy takes place in France, in the village of Monpazier (Périgord region). Due to the unique conditions of the work and the accommodations offered, the number of participants is limited to small group (selected applications), which guarantees the participants proper personal attention.

Intensive classes, solo and chamber music, students' concerts included in the festival's program, friendly atmosphere, encounters and exchanges with international musicians in exceptional surroundings; the academy took place for the first time in August 2016, welcoming pianists and violinists.
