Michèl Yost (Paris, 1754 – Paris, July 5, 1786)[1] was a famous French clarinetist and cofounder of the French clarinet school. He was a brilliant instrumentalist[2] and even known beyond the boundaries of France.

Yost was a friend of Johann Christoph Vogel.[3] Joseph Beer (1744–1811) was Yost's teacher. Yost himself was a clarinet teacher counting famous clarinetists such as Xavier Lefèvre amongst his pupils.
