My first instrument was the piano in which I was classically trained at the Conservatory of Bordeaux. I went on to study Jazz and Improvised Music by myself while pursuing my Classical training. I help students develop their own musical language, through a rich mix of technical skills, harmony, history and improvisation so that they open to the music and reach their ultimate goals.
