Born in 1972, Samuel Delaunay is an organist, a flutist and composer. Professionally, he is a project manager in a big IT company.
Alongside his scientific studies, he starts playing the organ at 20 as a self-taught musician. He learns improvisation with Henri-Franck Beaupérin. Several organ courses are occasions to practise the repertoire, accompaniment and a first approach to musical writting.
At the conservatoire of Nantes, he takes a course in musical writting from composer Christian Villeneuve and another in analysis from conductor Jenö Rehak. A master class with composer Thierry Escaich is also an important step of this training.
