A native of Sherbrooke, young violinist Jeanne Côté stands out for the sensitivity of her playing. She is a founding member of the Andara String Quartet, the junior ensemble in residence at the Université de Montréal. Besides her great devotion to chamber music, the young violinist has a great interest in new music and music research. She is a member of a research team for the ACTOR Project, which is investigating musician’s sense of perception.

Jeanne loves to share her passion for music through teaching. She currently teaches violin at the Coopérative des professeurs de musique de Montréal, as well as at the Joseph-François-Perrault school. In the fall of 2020, she co-founded Les Apprentis de la Musique Improvisée, an organization that offers improvisation workshops for youth.

She received her Master’s degree from McGill University, in the class of Axel Strauss and holds a Bachelor’s degree from the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal in the class of Johanne Arel.
