WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Yanik creates a safe, fun and open space to explore music and song. No matter what level you're starting at (or age!), he'll encourage and support you with your song and style choices. My last 2 years have been incredibly fun with him and I've grown my confidence through performances with his studio. Can't wait for the fall semester to start up again.
Yanik's lessons are a highlight of my 17 year old's week. Yanik is funny, encouraging and pulls the best out of my son's singing ability with concern for not just his singing but well being. I have never picked my son up without an upbeat happy youth jumping into the car happier than when he went into the studio.
Thanks again, for being the wonderfully talented and patient man you are. I appreciate you instructing T. without the stress of achieving specific levels in specific periods of time. She loves her music lessons with you. I know because she has to re-choose each year and she always wants to return. So thank you again. I am glad we connected with you in this life.
Hello Yanik, Thank you for this experience and most of all for both A. and I being able to be in a performance on stage together. You made a dream of mine a reality and I want to sincerely thank you for this. Thanks again for a great experience for both of us.
Yanik, I just wanted to thank you for all your help with N. and all the efforts you put into the arts community. On this snow day I wanted to share the success of children who are passionate about the arts and are supported by talented teachers in Victoria! Many thanks.
Hey Yanik, I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help today! I can't tell you how much I appreciate you being honest with me when I asked about my song choice so thanks again! I learned a lot at the workshop today and had so much fun at the same time! This has been one of the best performing experiences I have ever had (Island Star Search) and no matter what the results are I am so glad that I did this :)
Bonjour. Je voudrais te remercier du fond du coeur pour ta gentillesse et le coup de pouce que tu m'as donné. Tu m'as ouvert une porte qui m'était demeurée close jusqu'ici. Sans tes conseils et ton appui, je n'aurais pas suivi les notes plus haut, plus haut.
Hi Yanik, It will feel strange not to be registering for the fall, but as you know, M. is off to University at the end of August. You have been a wonderful teacher and mentor for her, and I am very grateful for all you have done for her. I know she will never, ever forget you! Kind regards.
Thank you for all your hard work, Yanik, for negotiating with Trinity College, for securing the venue, for ensuring the day went smoothly for the students, for supporting C. and preparing her for this challenging exam. You are amazing, a real treasure and very much appreciated. You should be very proud of your accomplishments today. Again, thank you Sooooo Much!!
I love your casual approach to recitals. I have participated in too many uptight concerts, and really appreciate it when a teacher can relax and enjoy the entertainment... Anyway, thanks for being such a great teacher!"
Working with Yanik on my vocal expression has been one of the most enriching learning experiences for my singing journey. In the year of us working together, I learned techniques that have expanded my vocal range, improved my vocal tone and enhanced my articulation when singing. We also focused on live performance techniques, which has immensely helped build my confidence when engaging live audiences from the stage. What I like most about Yanik is his personality. He's full of positive energy and brings a passion for singing that is infectious. I appreciate his professionalism and knowledge as a vocal coach, and I always manage to have fun during the process.
Yanik's 12 years of dedication, striving for excellence through his teaching, learning new music with the choir will be missed. On behalf of the guys, Yanik, good luck in all you do. You're the very best music and the arts have to offer .
