Matthieu is a jazz pianist from France. His passion for Jazz Music emerged while studying at the Conservatory of Dijon, before moving to Strasbourg to study with the Pianist Eric Watson, while pursuing his studies in engineering. Since 2018, Matthieu joined the Bern University of the Arts, to perfect his skills in the fields of Jazz piano , improvisation and composition under the tutelage of Django Bates. Recently, Matthieu was selected to attend the 2019 School for Improv in New York City led by Ralph Alessi. This unique opportunity allowed him to learn from some of the greatest jazzmen, such as Gerald Cleaver, Tony Malaby and Kris Davis.
Since 2015, Matthieu has distinguished himself by performing concerts in several French venues including Jazzdor Strasbourg, the Sunset in Paris, Un Doua de Jazz, Jazz in Colmar, Jazz en ville in Vannes, and can currently be seen playing at “Les Savons d’Hélène” (Strasbourg) on a monthly basis. In 2016, he also started to share his enthusiasm for Jazz Music by teaching at the CEDIM in Strasbourg. Empowered by these experiences, Matthieu was the laureate of both the Jazz Competition of the “Au Grès du Jazz” festival (2018) and the Jazz Contest of the festival of Vannes (2018). His debut solo album “Piano” (recorded by Iván Solano) was released in 2018.
