While although apprenticed in his family's watchmaking tradition, he took the decision to become a musician instead. Finally concentrating on the flute, he studied it at the Lausanne Conservatory and formed the Sarclon group. This group disbanded in 1980. Ever since André-Daniel Meylan has won increasing acclaim as a solo instrumentalist, singer and composer in his own right.
