Françoise Lombard (Québec, Canada) Diplôme Supérieur
Françoise is a musician and a teacher of both Eurhythmics and the ‘Art of Listening’.
Having gained the Diplôme of the Institut Jaques-Dalcroze and graduated from the Geneva Conservatoire (piano, solfège, harmony), she began to train teachers of Eurhythmics in Bienne (Switzerland).
She then undertook training in the ‘Art of Listening’ (the method of François Louche), which she now teaches to artists, teachers and therapists in Europe and Quebec.
She is member of the Dalcroze Canada professional training team and guest teacher at various Dalcroze centers.
Together with the singer, composer and video director Michel Comeau, Françoise signed the creation of 3 CDs:
«resonance»(osteophonic voices a cappella),
«Flip and Me»(book-cd for children to be released in English in 2021)
«Lullabies» (piano/voices without words)
She also recorded “Blue”, a CD of solo piano improvisations
Françoise recently created an Audio Library “music and movement” on the pedagogical principles of Dalcroze. This educational material, composed of piano improvisations focused on various elements that make up the musical language, is aimed at music teachers of all backgrounds and at professional Dalcroze students on their path of improvisation. The first three of a series of ten volumes are now available.
Françoise lives in Montreal and divides her professional life between Eurhythmics, the ‘Art of Listening’ and composition.
