Olivier Laroche

,
Live Music Performance Coach
I am a live music performance coach based in Montreal. I already do some mentoring in Quebec with such events as Le Festival de la Chanson de GranbyLe Phoque OFF and Festival Nuits d’Afrique. I can work both in French and English and I am looking for ways to let people outside Quebec know about my service. I believe the mentor’s café is the ideal type of event to do that.
