Born into a family of enthusiastic music-lovers, Marc Lys studied from the age of six at the Dinan Music School in Brittany, playing piano, then percussion, followed by the trombone, in his desire to play in the town band. He went on to study at the Conservatoire National de Région de Rennes, while continuing his general education, going on to continue musical and university studies in Paris, qualifying as a piano teacher and as a trombonist at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Musique before study of piano and theory at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique.
