A native of Quebec, Canada, jazz pianist Chantale Gagné began studying
music at the age of 8. At 15, the piano becomes Chantale’s passion.
From 1997 to 1999, she studied jazz piano with James Gelfand at College
Marie-Victorin in Montreal, followed by 4 years at McGill University where
she received her degree in “Jazz Piano Performance”.
In 2005, Chantale met famous pianist Kenny Barron and although she
studied with him for a short period of time, this encounter proved to be so
inspiring to Chantale both as a pianist and composer that she realized jazz
had become her deepest calling
