Having been nurtured under the guidance of renowned piano 
teachers such as Lorraine Ambrose 
and Suzanne Goyette and having studied at esteemed institutions such as the Vancouver Academy of Music, Lynn University and the Conservatory of Music of Montreal, Celine’s artistry is grounded in a rich foundation of musical education. 

Collaboration is at the heart of Celine’s musical pursuits. She has worked seamlessly with various artists and musicians, from international opera singers to classical instrumentalists. This spirit extends beyond performance; she actively engages in music production and songwriting. Notably, Celine has collaborated with her brother, a professional cellist currently immersed in the study of music in Florida.

Celine’s love for the stage is evident, and her desire to share her musical creations with a broader audience is present in her captivating social media presence. Her stellar piano performances have garnered attention for their soul-stirring renditions and compositions, at the age of 18, to her notable digital presence with her enchanting melodies and travels. 

In the next five years, Celine plans to go far with her musical endeavours as a pianist and composer/producer. Her dream is to work with film and TV show soundtracks

When asked which Fazioli she preferred, Celine replied, “I would have to say the Butterfly Fazioli! I had the privilege of practicing on it for a few hours when I landed in Vancouver and immediately fell in love with it. I have to admit I have a special place in my heart for white pianos, and the elegant grooves that make up the Butterfly Fazioli are just the cherry on top!”

Celine’s passion for the Fazioli doesn’t stop there. “Do not get me wrong, though; I absolutely adore the other Faziolis, especially the California Walnut Fazioli nestled in the Stefano Ricci store.” 

“But the touch and tone of the Butterfly Fazioli when I play are just exquisite. I find it to be more on the mellow warm side, and anyone who listens to my compositions and my preferred repertoire would know that I usually play more slow romantic pieces, which aligns perfectly with this piano.” 

Celine’s songwriting prowess spans melancholic pop tracks to soothing instrumentals. She tells stories that resonate with emotion, captivating listeners and transcending the boundaries of genre. 

As she continues to evolve as an artist, 
she is poised to enchant the world with her musical tapestry, leaving an indelible mark on the global stage.
