Anne Grappotte began playing the piano at the age of three. She entered the Paris Conservatoire at the age of eleven. In 1977 she was appointed to the newly created chair for vocal accompaniment. Over the course of her career, she has trained generations of pianists, singers and singers who are now working in outstanding positions. The successors in the leadership of her class are the pianist Anne le Bozec and Emmanuel Olivier, both of whom were her students and for whom studying with Anne Grappotte was decisive. Of great importance to Anne Grappotte is the exchange and contact between European music academies within the framework of the Erasmus programme for students and teachers, which she still cultivates today, especially with Vienna, Glasgow, Manchester, Frankfurt and Karlsruhe. Important partners for her were and are personalities such as Walter Moore, Hartmut Höll, Christopher Underwood, Gérard Souzay, Christa Ludwig, Irène Aïtoff, Paul von Schilhawsky, Martin Isepp, Noël Lee and Henriette Puig-Roget. Anne Grappotte is regularly invited as a jury member and gives master classes in France and abroad.
