Born in Moselle, Yannick began his musical studies at the age of 6 and studied organ at the municipal Conservatory of Freyming-Merlebach. Self-taught pianist, he officiates as accompanist in various choirs and musical ensembles, and is accepted at age 15 in the piano class of Pascale Bastien-Regnier. He then starts studying organ with Marie-Louise Langlais at age 18 at the CNR in Paris, studying simultanously applied mathematics, and therefore briefly interrupting his pianistic career. At the age of 20, he resumes his piano studies at the CNR of Cergy-Pontoise in the class of Nicole Delmas, and gets his diplomas of piano, Chamber music and sight-reading. Yannick is now working as project manager in the field of Digital Marketing. After having increased his pianistic skills for several years with Marian Ribicki (Ecole Normale Cortot), he has been studying with the concert pianist Axia Marinescu since 2015.
