I am an explorer who seeks authenticity, human connection, meaning and excellence in my work. Passionate about transmission, pedagogy is the keystone of my professional career.
After five years as a singer in different musical groups (see CV ), I decided to learn how to teach voice while developing my artistic projects. I studied voice science and voice pedagogy with Allan Wright (TCM teacher training), François Vallade, Nathalie Bonnaud, Cécile Bonardi, Monique Thomas ... In parallel I self- produced two EPs with my group Layenn, co-wrote the musical piece Concert Room and participated in the creation of the improvised show Airs de Rien with the collective Les Paillettes.
Then I went to the United States to study with Professor Ingo Titze (eminent American voice researcher) for 2 months and traveled alone from Canada to Bolivia for the next 10 months. A revitalizing, inspiring journey rich in encounters.
At the end of this trip, I seized the opportunity to continue my studies in the United States and obtained a Master of Music in Voice Pedagogy at the University of Shenandoah in Virginia. The talented and passionate teachers encouraged me to answer an important question: why do you sing? Obviously, I need connection with others and with myself. The voice allows you to reveal yourself, to assert your identity and to create a deep bond with the collective.
At the same time, I studied with mentors like Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon in New York and Chicago and taught free vocal improvisation "Circle Singing" at Shenandoah University. These experiences fueled my passion for music and voice work.
Today I continue to explore, meet and work with educators from all over the world and put myself at the service of singer, actor, orator to explore this deep and authentic link that exists between the voice and our inner music.
