Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught brass for ten years. I have experience teaching all abilities from beginners right through to advance jazz improvisation at music college level. I have taught all ages from 9 years old to 65 year olds. I have taught in schools in East London for ten years and have experience in classroom teaching, group lessons, and ensemble coaching. I have put people through ABRSM classical and jazz exams and have helped people prepare for Undergraduate/Masters level music college auditions for jazz courses at conservatoires including the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
I have performed with my own groups in Rochester International Jazz Festival (USA), Brecon Jazz Festival, Switzerland and major venues in UK and Europe. I have also done major touring with international acts including Max Romeo, Lee Scratch Perry, Black Roots, Ska Cubano and Gentleman's Dub Club. I have experience in the session world and have recently recorded for Warner Brothers Music and Netflix.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Up to date CRB Certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied for four years at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with Steve Waterman, Gethin Liddington and Geoff Simkins. At Trinity College of Music I studied with Chris Batchelor, Julian Siegel, Martin Speake and Simon Purcell. I have had classical training from Kevin Price (Head of Brass-RWCMD). These are all well established professional musicians many with an international reputation.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

One of my current students wishes to be able to play trumpet in his church band. I have been working with him on major scales and writing short melodies for him based on each scale. I give him a new major key every week to work on plus new pieces of music to learn. We have been working on several topics of trumpet technique including tonguing, slurring, and sound/tone. Once he is fluent in all twelve major keys we will work on minor scales and start work on longer melodies and technical exercises. He is making great progress!
I have taught students of all abilities from beginner lessons right through to preparation for music college. I have had students interested in classical technique/performance, jazz improvisation, and theory. I always make sure my students have goals and work with them to reach their targets.

Evan is a fantastic teacher, very encouraging, reliable, good clear communication and good rapport with the student. He is quite thorough and exacting while still making lessons fun and putting the student at ease. He gets good results from students.

My son really enjoys Evan's classes. He says he's a very good teacher. He especially likes the way Evan asks him to read out the notes before playing them for example. Evan is very patient and encouraging and shows interest in my son, finding ways for him to connect. He also goes out of his way to transpose music my son likes into sheet music that he can learn. He makes the class fun. My son has developed well, gaining a good sound, reading music, developing his ear, and enjoying practicing.

Evan is passionate about the instrument and his music. He plays any genre and will adapt to the level and musical preferences of the student. Evan is demanding but his classes were good fun as well, so I enjoyed while learning and progressing a great deal.
I took 2 years of weekly Trumpet classes with Evan getting some theoretical and practice foundations in improvising, jazz, swing squeezing the odd pop songs in as well. I highly recommend Evan whether you're an adult starting from scratch or brushing up some past skills! Were I still in London, I'd love to have him teach my children.

Evan taught me trumpet from absolute beginner to slightly less beginner over about 18 months a few years ago. He's a lovely guy, a patient teacher and very knowledgable on different styles, especially jazz. We were able to work on what was important to me, which kept it fun.
