Isabelle Jeannet was born in Bern, Switzerland. She had her first piano lesson at the age of eight.
At the "Hochschule für Musik und Theater" in Bern, Switzerland, she continued her professional training. She finished her studies in the class of Prof. Tomasz Herbut, earning her teaching and concert diplomas.
In master classes with Tatjana Nikolajewa, Andrzej Jasinski (Mozarteum Salzburg) and Nina Svetlanova, she perfected her pianistic capabilities.
She won several grants and scholarships including the "Kiefer-Hablitzel-Stiftung" award.
Shortly after finishing her studies a severe accident to her left hand led to two operations. For a long period of time it was impossible to perform in public.
Due to this injury, she became interested in the study of the hand’s movements and flexibility. This subsequently transformed her entire approach to piano playing and became the foundation for her teaching method.
Isabelle Jeannet’s intensive study of the great classical pianists such as Alfred Cortot, Dinu Lipatti, Jorge Bolet, and Vladimir Horowitz, and their romantic interpretation, is her main focus of interest. She wants to keep this great tradition of piano playing alive while transmitting it in a contemporary form.
