Born in Paris, Françoise Wiltgen-Béasse began studying piano at the age of 10 years. Noticed and encouraged by the pianist Yuri Bukov at the Bach competition where she was a winner at the age of 11, she intensified learning the piano while pursuing classical studies.

After her degree in 1977, she entered the École Normale de Musique de Paris where she successfully completed courses in piano, sight-reading, chamber music, music history, music theory, musical aesthetics and pedagogy. Meanwhile she attended master classes with Bruno Rigutto and Serge Petitgirard while making her first experiences in education.

In 1982 she became teacher for piano and sight-reading at the Conservatory of Music of Esch-sur-Alzette. Since 1999 her sight-reading class has grown considerably and became, together with piano accompaniment, her main activitiy. She has written a lot of pieces for that purpose. Furthermore she has specialized in repertoire for two pianos or piano 4 hands.
