After a rich academic curriculum in Paris with Noëlle Spieth and Frédéric Michel (as teachers), she has been able to study both in Paris National Supérieur Conservatoire (CNSM) with Olivier Baumont and Blandine Rannou and in the Royal Academy of Music London with Carole Cerasi and Terrence Charlston.

Camille is currently completing a Master Degree and an Education Degree in Paris.

She is a keen chamber music player and has perfomed in a wide range of ensembles on the harpsichord, piano or organ. She has played the continuo on the harpsichord for Rachel Podger at the Wigmore Hall with RAM Baroque Soloists, with Laurence Cummings in a performance of Telemann’s Water music and on organ continuo for the Kohn Foundation Bach series.
