Very interested in teaching, Annick Roussin is currently professor at the École Normale de Musique Alfred Cortot since 2018.
From September 2014 to June 2018, she taught violin as an Associate professor at the Faculty of Music of the University of Montreal.
She was a violin teacher at the National Superior Conservatory – CNSMD in Lyon from 2000 to 2009 and at the National Conservatory – CRR in Paris from 2007 to 2014.
She was also an assistant in the chamber music class of Christian Ivaldi and in the violin classes of Alain Moglia and Boris Garlitsky at the CNSMD in Paris.

Many of her students hold positions as solo violin or violin members in orchestras such as the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France, the Paris Opera Orchestra, the Lyon National Orchestra, the Berlin Radio Orchestra, Lausanne and Geneva Chamber Orchestras, the Luxembourg Orchestra.

Very sensitive to bodily expression, she has long practiced dance (classical, modern-jazz, and contemporary), mime and the Feldenkrais Method. These parallel experiences allowed her to considerably enrich her approach to the violin and music and, thus, to bring new perspectives to her pedagogy.
