At 8 years of age Jérôme BRODIN met the harpsichord for the first time. He came across this peculiar instrument, by chance, at the music school of his home town (Compiègne, France) and immediately fell in love with it. The same year, he was accepted to the class of Sylvie Pécot-Douatte with whom he studied harpsichord until he was 16 years old. Having moved to Bretagne, he entered the harpsichord class of Pascal Dubreuil at the Conservatoire of Rennes where, for 5 years, he studied solo harpsichord, basso continuo and chamber music. In parallel, he followed a musicology bachelor degree in the University of Rennes and graduated in 2005. During this period, he taught harpsichord in music schools as well as privately.
In 2007, he left France to continue his study in the Netherlands. He was accepted to the harpsichord class of Siebe Henstra, at the Conservatoire of Utrecht where he graduated with a master degree in 2011. He completed his training as a soloist and continuist by participating in many masterclasses with Bob Van Asperen, Frédérick Haas and Gustav Leonhardt.
Since then, Jérôme plays with many ensembles; the best known are the Holland Baroque Society, BarokOpera Amsterdam and Opéra Louise. He also plays regularly in chamber music (with Giardino Musicale, Les Sélénites and the harpsichordist Claude Meneux-Poizat) and solo.
Since 2016, Jérôme is also teacher of the Alexander Technique.
