Xavier Thollard

Xavier Thollard was born in 1982, and started to learn music at the age of 9 in the Rennes Conservatory of Music in France. After percussions and classical piano studies, he decided to learn jazz, and had piano-jazz lessons in a district school. He especially learned in contact with other musicians, playing in many formations, and having jazz training courses (like Marciac’s in 2001).

Since he moved to Paris in 2002, Xavier Thollard has led several musical projects and collaborated with many musicians, in particular by playing with the Big Band des Universités de Paris, which was created in 2004 by Thierry Lalo, and playing in duet with french harmonica player Yvonnick Prené.
