Pépin received his music education in Montreal, where Arthur Letondal and Claude Champagne were his teachers, at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia as a scholarship student, and at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto (with Lubka Kolessa, Arnold Walter and Nicholas Goldschmidt). He was in Paris from 1949 to 1955, where he took Olivier Messiaen’s famous analysis course together with revolutionaries as Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Serge Garant. After that, he switched to a atonal composing.
