Richard starts playing the drums at the age of 7 at the Pays de Gex music school and quickly joins his village band.
He then wishes to diversify by taking keyboard lessons (xylophone, vibraphone, marimba, etc) and in 1999 joins the Junior Departmental Orchestra of Ain. He will be drummer-percussionist for 3 years, with about 20 concerts, the production of an album and promotion to a national orchestra competition in the division Excellence.
At the beginning of the 2000s, Richard turns more towards contemporary music, notably with the group Three Feet Cats. Over the course of its 8 years of existence, the band's style evolved from Reggae to Metal, as well as Ska, Hip-Hop and Dub.
About a hundred concerts will be given in France, Switzerland and Belgium and 2 recorded albums will be released on the independent Geneva-based label GPS Productions.
Alongside Three Feet Cats, Richard is also involved in various concert and recording projects with different groups in the Rhône-Alpes region and the Geneva basin.
In 2011, he trains at the MAI (Music Academy International), in Nancy.
Richard will have the opportunity to play and learn in many styles (Jazz, Fusion, Rock, Latin, Bues, Funk, etc.) with renowned musicians such as Franck Aghulon, Patrick Rondat, Christophe Godin, Jean-Claude Rapin, Jean Bisello, Fred Villard, Denis Palatin.
Richard obtained his diploma and finished the best of his class.
Today, in parallel to his teaching activity, we can see and above all hear Richard with the Trip-Hop band Alice and The Alphamen, and the Blues Rock trio Concrete Donkey , both of which have released their first EP.
