About

William Regnier - Professionnal musician

I am a professional musician based in Montréal, Québec. While I work mainly as a drummer and a percussionist, I have also played the roles of music director, producer, composer, arranger, recording engineer and mixer.

 

I was introduced to music at an early age and began experimenting in my dad’s home recording studio. My parents’ eclectic collection of albums gave me access to a wide range of musical genres, from progressive rock and jazz fusion to pop and world music.

 

I hold a master’s degree in Jazz Performance & Composition from Université de Montréal under the guidance of drummer Paul Brochu and pianist/composer John Roney.

 

I have worked as a freelance drummer on records, tours, and a variety of gigs with a range of artists including Gregory Charles, Marie-Chantal Toupin, the Orchestre Métropolitain, Alexandre Da Costa, John Roney, Mohamed Abozekry, and many more.

 

Alongside studio work and live gigs, I tutor students in various music schools in and around Montréal.
