Christine PYTHON

Voice workshop

Christine Python began her artistic career with Erik Truffaz, while studying singing at the Conservatoire Populaire de Musique in Geneva, where she obtained her certificate in 1988.

Certified in musical pedagogy (SSPM), she has been teaching singing for many years. Professor at the EJMA-Lausanne for 23 years, she has taken on the responsibilities of singing teacher and workshop teacher, leader of the free class and the professional class. She works there in collaboration with Christiane Legrand and Suzanne Abbuehl. She is also a reference teacher for singing students in the teaching sector and prepares students for entry to the Hautes Ecoles in Switzerland and abroad (HEM, Berklee, Brussels). Thanks to her skills and experience, she is also sought after as an examination juror (Montreux Conservatory jazz section, Geneva Conservatory of Music, AVCEM). She currently teaches in the jazz section of the Conservatoire de musique neuchâtelois, at the Conservatoire de l'Ouest Vaudois (COV), and runs singing workshops at the Maison de la Music of Divonne-les-Bains.

Through her pedagogical orientation, Christine Python gives everyone the opportunity to acquire strength and skills, whatever their musical project. She encourages creative development and the discovery of the voice as an instrument. Her tools: music in all its forms, musical language to enrich the discourse, and improvisation to liberate it.

In parallel with teaching, Christine Python pursues her profession as a singer. Present in numerous creations, she sings with Jack Dejohnette, Daniel Humair, Christiane and Michel Legrand, as well as the Lausanne Big Band. An eclectic musician, she is curious about every opportunity encountered, and is involved in projects ranging from the studio to free improvisation stages, as well as the repertoire of jazz standards. Her universe: sound and words in improvised music.

Today she is developing her own repertoire of songs within her 4tet, accompanied by Christian Graf (l), Marcel Papaux (r) and Pierre-François Massy (b), on texts in French by Joël Bastard, a writer-poet published by Gallimard. This collaboration resulted in the recording of the CD "Même si", released in spring 2014. This CD won the "Coup de coeur" prize from the Académie Charles Cros in Paris in June 2014.
