Session: Trumpet Fundamentals with Pierre
To introduce Pierre DUTOT, we will start by borrowing the quote from the great MAURICE ANDRE:
“I congratulate and encourage this great educational artist to continue his action which honours the French school of Brass”.
50 years of a brilliant career that is difficult to summarize …. A charismatic and unmissable figure in the world of the trumpet, he dedicated his professional career thatconveys passion, experience, demand and musical intuitions to several generations of trumpeters and musicians.
At 10 years old, he feels a real love for the trumpet while listening to a clown in a circus play GELSOMINA extract from LA STRADA of NINO ROTA. He understands from this moment the importance of encounters that mark a life which will lead him to travel, communicate and generously share throughout all his life career on five continents.
He studied brilliantly at the CNSM of PARIS and simultaneously obtained his diplomas of Physical and Sports Educationand Psychology who will influence considerably his teaching techniques for trumpet learning. He also meets and frequents great Masters who allow him to refine his pedagogical convictions (R.DELMOTTE, P.POLLIN, J.STAMP, T.DOKSHITSER )
Eager to share his passion for the trumpet, he teaches in different conservatories: Caen, Villeurbanne, Bordeaux and the CNSM of Lyon for 23 years. He is also appreciated as a solo trumpet at the National Orchestra of Lyon that he leaves with regret to answer the numerousjob requests he continuously received. Passion and generosity are the driving force behind his educational and instrumental career.
He then founded the Ensemble HEXAGONE ( brass septet with percussions) with which he develops a pedagogical actionand many recitals which makes it a showcase, a must-see in the French Brass School in all continents.
