Ms Clementine Grimault


Ms Clementine Grimault is a French pianist and piano teacher, London graduate, with Asian roots.

Global citizen, she has years of experience as a piano instructor, a soloist, and a collaborative pianist across France, the United Kingdom and Asia.

She graduated with honors in piano performance from the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama (GSMD) in London, United Kingdom. She holds piano teaching qualifications from the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur (CNSMDP), and the Pole d’Enseignement Supérieur Music and Dance (PESMD) of Bordeaux, in France. Besides this, she completed a full French professional curriculum, holding final prizes in Piano, Music Theory (Solfege) and Chamber Music from Conservatoire Regional (CRR).

Ms Clementine studied under Paul Roberts at the Guildhall school, and under Mrs Lemée during her early years – a former student of Yvonne Loriod-Messiaen, inspired by the French piano school legacy. In order to gain a more authentic experience about early repertoire and piano technique development, she studied the fortepiano with American early keyboard performer Maggie Cole. Beyond this, she took part in masterclasses with internationally known piano professors including Bruno Rigutto, Claire Desert, Pierre Réach, Charles Owen, and Ronan O’Hora.

Ms Clementine developed a keen interest in impressionist and modern music over the years. She has given lecture-recitals in Paris in France, and in Hong-Kong for festival ‘Le French May’. She also made a TV appearance on Radio Television Hong-Kong as a main guest for broadcast ‘RTHK’s The Works’, with an interview and a live performance of Debussy. In London, she also took part in Iain Burnside’s play “Journeying boys” where she held the dual role of pianist and actress.

Always having been particularly fond of education, and with a sense of human generosity from a young age, Clementine enjoys sharing her passion by teaching. She has gained trust and success, with a broad range of piano students of all ages in France, London and Asia. Prior to joining the Tanglewood Music School in Singapore, Ms Clementine was a piano professor at a Conservatoire in Paris area.

Currently, Ms Clementine is teaching piano, music theory, and piano accompaniment at Tanglewood Music School.
