(raised in Weston, Ontario; of British heritage)
Pauline started playing music after an already established career as a Community Nutritionist. "All of a sudden I fell in love with the violin and I entered into a new dimension!"
Pauline studied privately, classical violin technique with Bernard Cormier, Helmut Lipsky and Claire Segal (with whom she still maintains a privileged rapport). She was introduced to "fiddle music" by teacher, Chris Crilly (of the group Barde) ; contemporary music by Robert Leonard (Université de Montréal.); and jazz by teacher, Yves Champoux. She is currently playing with the chamber orchestra, Les Archets Galants and in the past gained invaluable orchestral experience with the Montreal Civic Orchestra, the Mouvement Culturel de la Musique, and the Marguerite Bourgeoys School Orchestra. She presently sings soprano with the Hemmingford Choir, Cantata, under the direction of Lylliane LeQuellec, and was part of the Ensemble Vocal Kantado under the direction of Yvan Sabourin in the past.
Principally though, her main musical influence has been her soul partner, Daniel. He introduced her to singing and composing and the wealth of fun to be had playing music together with others.
Introducing youngsters in the neighborhood day-care centers to music, as well as teaching in a private music school; she conveys her passion for music to the younger generation; hoping in turn to excite them, and entice them into the world of music.
