Stéphane Guillaume

soprano saxophone, bass clarinet, flute

Stéphane Guillaume (Saint Marc, France, 1974), Selmer-endorsed saxophonist, is widely lauded for his technique and versatility. Winner of the prestigious Django Reinhardt Prize, and collaborator of Vince Mendoza and Peter Erskine, he has been recording and touring since the early nineties, developing a soulful, signature sound while making use of flutes, saxophones and clarinets. 

Along with his passion for jazz, Guillaume harbors a deep belief in face to face education. With a repertoire lauded as “a marvel of invention”, Guillaume leads the student bigband of the Centre des Musiques Didier Lockwood, attesting to his belief that jazz should be taught on the bandstand. Previously, he taught workshops around the world, including at the famous Jazz in Marciac festival.
