    Very informative & easy to find a great reliable music teacher.

  • Christine M.

    Evan is patient and thorough. He always conducts lessons in an age appropriate manner and tailors instruction to the child's interests, while continuing in the proper learning order. I would and have recommenced him. He is quite talented; holding top honors for his performances.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I give free information sessions for prospective clients.  I explain my teaching philosophy, the courses I use, and studio policies.  This orientation prepares the student for success in my program

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance from the University of Denver.  I am also a certified Suzuki Piano Instructor.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students of all ages.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be sure to hire someone who has a music degree.  They are more qualified than someone who has not had formal academic training.
