Emie R. Roussel

Originally from the south shore of Montreal (Quebec, Canada), and an adopted resident of Rimouski, Emie Rioux-Roussel discovered the fascinating world of music through her parents, themselves musicians and singers. She began studying classical piano at the age of 5 and continued lessons until she was 13. After a complete two-year break, she decided to follow her instincts and her love of improvisation to begin studying jazz with her father, jazz pianist Martin Roussel. He would be her mentor until she started college studies at Cégep de St-Laurent under the guidance of Lorraine Desmarais. She completed her diploma in jazz piano performance and was awarded the college’s “Very High Distinction” grant
