I utilize the experience and knowledge that I have acquired through the years to educate and inspire a diverse group of students, from elementary school children to retired adults. My goal as a teacher is to instill a sense of music appreciation, while at the same time educating students about the technical aspects of music. Furthermore, I strive to expand my students interests by increasing their knowledge of different genres of music, organizing concerts, and encouraging them to perform together in small groups. By utilizing these effective methods, I am able to connect with each student, introduce new concepts, foster a fun learning environment, and help my students blossom into confident, well-rounded musicians.
I am a professional violinist, composer and educator from Montreal, Canada. I have been recognized for my improvisational skills, versatility and unique playing style. I studied Classical Violin Performance at the University of Montreal and St-Laurent College from 2008 through 2013. Since completing my studies, I have had the opportunity to hold a number of professional roles including violin and guitar teacher, symphony orchestra player, and solo violinist for world touring shows. As of today I am a proud member of the prestigious Cirque Du Soleil Musicians and Artists bank, and am endorsed by NS Design Electric Violins and Remic Microphones.
I have recorded and toured all over the world. I performed over 1200 shows in front of hundred of thousands of spectators, and was interviewed about my role as a touring musician by various TV and radio shows, including LA Fox News and the Grand Ole Opry radio station. Through these experiences, I have been fortunate enough to learn and work with renowned artists, musical director and composers from all around the world.
Violinist for Cavalia Odysseo /// 2013 -> 2019
My job as Violinist for Odysseo took me all over North America. During the past 6 years, I’ve performed over 1200 show, played live on national television, radio stations and had to interact regularly with the press. I play 4 string acoustic violin and 5 strings electric violin. My effects setup consists of a MIDI controller Roland FC-300, a Mac mini and Ableton Live. A more technical part of my job is also programing my midi controller, MIDI mapping in Ableton Live and design my sounds and effects myself.
Guitar / Violin Teacher /// 2008 -> Now
I started teaching guitar in a private music school in Montreal in 2008. I rapidly built a technic and approach that would suit the different personalities and needs of my students. I had several private violin students while I was studying at University of Montreal. I am very familiar with the Suzuki method and I’m always flexible on my way to apply it because I’m convinced that every student learns differently.
