About the luthier

Instrument making was a sudden and unexpected encounter; one of a kind that in a short period of time changes the course of your life …

Self taught luthier since over 40 years, I built so far more than 200 instruments, mostly classical guitars. I also did ​​countless adjustments and repairs , modifications and restorations, as well as various accessories.
I sold my instruments all around Canada and many countries like Austria, China, France, Italy, Tunisia and U.S.A.
All of this is not to mention the wonderful encounters with guitarists, musicians and music lovers from around the world.

Since 2015, I have shared my work as a luthier with teaching some technical courses at the Lutherie-Guitare Bruand school program, offered in association with the Cégep du Vieux Montréal.
