After his studies at the conservatoire in Aix-en-Provence, Matthieu Camilleri received instruction in Baroque violin with Chiara Banchini at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis where he received a Diploma in Early Music Performance. His postgraduate studies with François Fernandez then led him to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris.
During his studies with the organist Rudolf Lutz, Matthieu specialized in historical improvisation and completed a Masters Degree in 2008. He improvises with a bass or solo, and has developed a system of polyphonic reflexes for string instruments.
Matthieu Camilleri occasionally teaches and gives master classes at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, at both the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Lyon and in Paris, at the Royal Academy of Music in London, at the Festival de Musique Improvisée de Lausanne, and the Académie de Monaco.
