Michel Brousseau was introduced to music very early in life. His passion and talent were quickly noticed and he started intensive piano studies at the age of nine. He rapidly developed a special interest in symphonic music and, at the age of fourteen, already knew that he would become a conductor.
He studied conducting under maestro Raffi Armenian, completing his studies at the Montreal Conservatory of Music, where he was unanimously awarded the First Prize in piano. He also studied conducting with Otto Werner-Müller, Milen Nachev, Valery Vachev and Aldo Faldi, among others. In 2005, he was a finalist in the “Luigi Mancinelli” International Opera Conducting Competition in Italy. He has conducted in Italy, France, the Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, the United States and Canada.
