After completing her studies at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal under Marie-Andrée Benny, Ariane went on to refine her craft with flutist Mathieu Dufour in Chicago with the generous support of the Prix d’Europe, which she won in 2013. Her personal reflections on transverse flute performance and pedagogy led to doctoral studies in the Faculty of Music at the Université de Montréal under the tutelage of Jean-François Rivest and Michel Duchesneau. Since 2019, she teaches flute and gives lectures at that same institution.
Ariane Brisson wishes to extend special thanks to the Prix d’Europe Foundation (2013), the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec (CALQ), the Sylva-Gelber Foundation, the Observatoire interdisciplinaire de création et de recherche en musique (OICRM), and to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) — all of which have proven essential to her ambitions and various artistic projects. Ariane plays both on a Yamaha transverse flute made of grenadilla wood, as well as on a Powell 10K flute graciously loaned by Canimex Inc. (Drummondville, Canada), property of the patron Roger Dubois.
