Born in Cap-Santé in 1983, Ghislain Dubé holds a master’s degree in piano from the Conservatoire de musique de Québec, where he studied with Mr. Gérald Lévesque. In chamber music, he was coached by Mr. Darren Lowe, violinist, and Mr. Pierre Genest, writing teacher.
During his studies, he also attended master classes given by renowned pianists like such as Richard Raymond, Jean-Paul Sévilla, Joseph Kalichstein, Stephen Hough, Tomer Lev and Pascal Rogé.
In 2006, he won the First Prize in the “under 23 years old and less” category at the National Final of the Canadian Music Competition, held in Rimouski. Then, at the Festival de musique du Royaume held in Chicoutimi, Ghislain came second in the “Piano virtuoso” category, and two days later, at the same music contest, the Trio Opus 40 of which he’s a member won the chamber music First Prize.
At the end of his master’s studies, Ghislain also took part in the Conservatoire de musique de Québec’s music competition, where he won the Piano prize, as well as the chamber music Prize with high distinction.
In fall 2007, he joined the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal for a year of advanced training with the distinguished pianist André Laplante. Today, back in Quebec City, Ghislain is still active: he devotes part of his time to teaching piano and appears in many events as a guest pianist.
