Pianist and composer, I've been living in Paris since 2004. I graduated from the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik, Lebanon (Laure Akiki’s class), the Russian Conservatory 'Serge Rachmaninoff "( Claire Lizé Mélonie’s class) and the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris (Michael Wladkowski’s class in piano, Devy Erlih’s class in chamber music and Christine Marchais’ class in deciphering). After obtaining my diploma from the European Suzuki association in London I became a specialist in teaching music for toddlers starting three years old. I recently got my French State Diploma in piano from the “Pole of Higher Education of Music Ile-de-France”.
During my training, I got the advice of leading pianists and pedagogues such as: Solomon Mikowski, Ramzi Yassa, Paul Badura-Skoda, Hamish Milne, John Ferguson and others. I also received the Second Prize of the Chatou City Competition in 2010, and I’ve been awarded by the Flame competition in Paris, and the Monrond-les-Bains competition.
I am a confirmed concert artist. As a soloist, chamber musician, organist and choirmaster I gave several concerts in Lebanon, France, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Colombia and Venezuela. I shared the stage with musicians and many large renowned artists such as the soprano Maire-José Matar, tenor Father Naoum Khoury, mezzo-Soprano Roula Safar, baryton-Basse Shadi Tarabay, violist Emmanuel Raynaud, pianist Miguel Angel Estrella, Parisii Quartet, Symphonic Choir Montpelier, Lebanese philharmonic orchestra, etc ... at the Elysée Palace, Unesco Palace, Salle Cortot, Theatre Adyar, Château d'Orion Festival, Oriental Nights Festival in Dijon, Musicometa Festival Rome, Fondazione Siotto festival Calgiari, Palace of the United Nations Genève, Molière theater in Brussels, theater of Fine Arts in Bogota, etc ...
I am currently a professor at the Conservatory of Lagny-sur-Marne and the Suzuki Institute in Paris, and at the same time I hold the position of organist and choirmaster at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lebanon in Paris. In parallel with my intense musical activity, i had a PhD in economic history at the university of Sorbonne-Université.
