Who is Yvonnick?

Yvonnick was already playing the harmonica professionally at the age of 17, in Parisian club scenes. He later earned a master’s degree in music at the Sorbonne University in Paris, in 2011 and while still enrolled, he moved to New-York City to receive multiple full-tuition scholarships at the City College of New York, Columbia University and at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. 

Yvonnick is the founder of New York Harmonica School, author of 13 books, bandleader of the Yvonnick Prene quartet and Padam Swing. He is currently based in Manhattan, New York.
