Violin, Yoga

Daphné Bourbonnais

Born in Rimouski (Québec), Daphné completed her master’s degree with distinction (2020) at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal, where she also obtained a Chamber Music Diploma (2019).

She recently graduated from the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory (Toronto), completing the Artist Diploma Program (2023) under the tutelage of Erika Raum.

Throughout the years, she took part in different festival orchestras and has toured across Canada, Spain and South Korea. Since then, Daphné has won several positions in orchestras such as : Section First Violin with the Orchestre Symphonique de l’Estuaire (2019), Assistant Principal Second with the Ontario Philarmonic (2022) and Section First Violin with Sinfonia Toronto (2023).

Fascinated with body awareness, Daphné completed a 250-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Luna Yoga (Montreal). She is currently completing a 100-hour Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Appleseed Yoga (Toronto). She wishes to integrate those learnings in her violin teaching, combined with her completed Associate Diploma (ARCT) in Violin, Pedagogy from the Royal Conservatory of Music (2022).

With over 10 years of experience teaching music and yoga, Daphne is fluent in French and English. Her goal is to give her students the best and most diverse tools to experience a state of freedom when they play.

Daphne mainly studied classical music and that’s what she loves to teach. She is open to the interests, level and age of each of her students; her teaching style is based on the most popular and recognized teaching methods (Létourneau, Suzuki, RCM, etc.). Daphné considers that a good theoretical basis and a daily discipline is essential to allow her students to have all the tools to progress as well as possible.
