French-italian violonist MARIO FORTE was born in 1983. He began the violin at the age of five and studied classical violin in the Nîmes, Perpignan and Montpellier conservatories. It is the encounter with Didier Lockwood that led him to jazz violin, which he encouraged him to pursue.
Later he graduated from the Paris Conservatory (CNSM) where he studied jazz and improvised music in the classes of Riccardo DEL FRA, Glenn FERRIS, Pierre De BETHMANN, François THEBERGE, Dré PALLMERTS and Hervé SELLIN.
In 2008, he was selected to represent the France at the Jazz International Association of School which took place in Riga (Latvia).
