Caroline Laurent, Violin
- Hochelaga Maisonneuve
Caroline is currently completing her Bachelor of violin at Montreal’s Music Conservatory. She was first admitted to this high level institution at the age of 10 with Julie Cossette in Quebec, and then continued her studies in Montreal with Johanne Arel. During these years, she participated in many projects, had the opportunity to perform as a soloist with Les Violons du Roy and occasionally joined the Quebec Symphony Orchestra.
Caroline has also taken part of several summer programs, including the Domaine Forget music academy, the Laurentian Music Center and the String Academy at Indiana University Bloomington. These experiences have allowed her to work with great masters like Raymond Dessaints, Alexandre Da Costa, Mimi Zweig, Philippe Djokic, and Mauricio Fuks. In 2010 she was awarded with the Canadian Governor General's Academic Medal and received many other scholarships through her years of music studies.
Caroline is a dynamic violinist who loves to share her passion for music. She received music pedagogy lessons from Claude Letourneau’s Music Society, where she acquired experience in many areas of music teaching, like musical awakening, music reading and writing, private lessons and group lessons. Caroline began her teaching career in Quebec’s private schools and at the Aimé Gagnon summer music program at Quebec’s Music Conservatory. She has been a member of Claude Létourneau’s Music Society for many years and thus uses this acquired knowledge, using various methods, to provide her students with quality and personalized music lessons. Caroline’s patience and positive energy will make violin learning a fun and unique experience where everyone can develop at their own pace in a pleasant atmosphere.
