"My name is Glenn Firester and I'm a jazz drummer, chromatic harmonica player and reluctant piano player.

Yvonnick is on the leading edge of Jazz Harmonica as demonstrated from his amazing body of recorded work. He is truly an inspiration and his website provides all the building blocks and tools to improve everyone's playing. I highly recommend you check it out!"
MAUNY // HS Academy Member
"I joined in September 2019. It took me many years to finally discover a thorough Jazz course at an affordable price. Yvonnick must have spent hours, if not months putting together a fantastic course with theory, demonstrations, play-along exercises, and song analysis. I am progressing through it all in small bites, and am very pleased with my progress."
