Biography

I was born in Lac-St-Jean and have been living in the Outaouais region for over 30 years. I grew up on a dairy farm and the wide open spaces. As far as I can remember, the family home was always filled with music. Above all, there was my eldest brother, my childhood idol, able to play anything he wished by ear. I realized at a very early age that piano would play a major role in my life. I began studying classical piano at the age of 7 and as a teenager, I would spend hours listening to songs to play them by ear. Over time, I tried my hand at composing, first solos and then in a band as musical director and pianist. During that period I also began sharing my musical knowledge by giving piano lessons, which I’ve never stop doing ever since. Through the years, I have been involved in various events: weddings, fashion shows, variety shows, contests, dance parties, plays, choirs (as a singer or pianist), music awakening sessions for kindergarten students and accompanist for ballet classes. Having studied as an occupational therapist and having worked mainly in mental health, I regularly used music as a therapeutic tool, always carefully adapting my methods to suit the patient’s needs.

In 2000, I put an end to my professional therapeutic activities in order to devote myself to music through composing, self-learning methods and advanced classes, duet project and choir singing.

In 2010, I produced my first instrumental music album. This album, which bears the title Air, is the result of several years of work and constant improvement. For this project, relaxation music was an obvious choice and suited my purpose that is to foster well-being perfectly. I have always believed in the power of music and it is with this spirit that I produced an album which offers gentle and serene tracks that bring forth a feeling of well-being.

Through my music, I hope to help listeners shed their worries and bring them to a peaceful and soothing oasis. This is the first in a series of projects through which I will explore various aspects of instrumental music and share my love of music.
