We perform a general reduction scheme that can be applied in particular to the spectral study of operators of the type P=P(x,y,hDx,Dy)P=P(x,y,hD_x,D_y) as hh tends to zero. This scheme permits to reduce the study of PP to the one of a semiclassical matrix operator of the type A=A(x,hDx)A=A(x,hD_x). Here, for any fixed (x,ξ)Rn(x,\xi )\in\R^n, the eigenvalues of the principal symbol a(x,ξ)a(x,\xi ) of AA are eigenvalues of the operator P(x,y,ξ,Dy)P(x,y,\xi ,D_y).
