Thanks for checking out my profile!
I was born and raised around Seattle, WA. From an early age, I loved music and playing around with whatever instruments I could get my hands on! From these humble (and noisy!) beginnings, I have had a wild musical ride! This musical journey has led me into forays into saxophone, guitar, singing, piano, clarinet, percussion, digital music, and recording. Now, I love playing and teaching these instruments and sharing the beauty of their music with others.
I love a wide variety of music and exploring new styles! My musical tastes change frequently depending on what new music I am listening to. I am currently enthusiastic about jazz guitar, Justin Timberlake, Romantic and twentieth-century classical music, Croatian klapa choirs, chill dubstep, and big band jazz.
My degree from Willamette University is a B.A. in Music, focusing on vocal performance. (I'm a bass-baritone…) During my time at Willamette, I received numerous awards from the music department including Outstanding Student Award for Musicianship twice and departmental honors upon my graduation. Currently, I am in Boston, employed as a professional church musician, and focusing on multicultural music and musical innovation. This most recent experience has been a wonderful experience as it has challenged me musically and personally!
I taught my first music lesson in 2007. From there, I have facilitated a variety of music lessons encompassing guitar, piano, percussion, and basic music competency skills. These have been with students of varying skill levels, backgrounds, commitment, ages, and English-speaking abilities.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Evan Michael C. was surrounded by music from a young age. His father, Salvatore C., a talented guitarist dreamed that each of his children would learn a different instrument. After Evan’s eldest brother claimed the guitar, Evan reluctantly picked up the bass at the age of 13. At first, Evan was not happy: It was heavy, and it hurt his fingers. But Evan quickly learned to love the power the bass had over the bandstand and after a few lessons, it was clear that the instrument fit him like a glove.
He soon began to perform with high school rock bands, sneaking into local bars and clubs for weekend gigs. A new-found appreciation for upright bass led Evan to start his own trio, sparking a love of R&B and Jazz music that thrives in him to this day. Late in his high school career, he began to set his eye on top music schools, hoping to pursue his craft professionally. He wanted to play with the best, learn from the best and become the best.
In 2007 he was invited to attend Berklee College of Music, an opportunity he would not take for granted. Boston was a whole new world for Evan and he quickly began joining up-and-coming artists for live and studio sessions. His initial efforts paid off in 2009 as he was selected to perform in the American Songbook Concert featuring Burt Bacharach and Grammy award-winning singer Paula Cole.
Evan graduated from Berklee in 2011 and has split the last several years between studio gigs and touring with renown international acts. Currently, Evan works as the live and studio bassist for Jazz/Pop vocalist Nikki Yanofsky, the touring bassist for Country singer Nicole Frechette, and as the bassist for Boston-based R&B group Biscuits & Gravy.
In the last year alone, Evan has worked with executive producers Quincy Jones and Rod Temperton and recorded a live session documentary at Capitol Records featuring Herbie Hancock. Evan will spend the Summer of 2013 on an international tour with Nikki Yanofsky before returning to Boston, Massachusetts where he currently resides.

I am an all around musician who loves to share my knowledge and passion for music with others. I find it just as important to know how to teach someone as it is to know about the instrument you are teaching.

I has also studied traditional Irish music at the University of Limerick (Ireland). I have been a guest drum set soloist with the San Diego State Javanese Gamelan and a guest musician with the Yelle-Belle Dance Ensemble in New York City. I have collaborated with such artists as Barry Goldberg (Bob Dylan), Bonnie Pointer (The Pointer Sisters/Solo Artist), James Galway (flute soloist), and Alex Del Zoppo (Sweetwater). I hav enjoyed performing with ensembles in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and REDCAT. My teachers include Gordon Stout, Alan Abel, Tim Genis, Tom Gauger, John Bergamo, John Joe Kelly, and Randy Gloss. I was the Principal Timpanist for the West Covina Symphony from 2008-2010. Currently I am the Studio Drummer at Melrose Music Studios in Hollywood and the drummer for Los Angeles based bands Lizzy Williams and The Learning System. I am also is a section percussionist for The Orchestra Unleashed, an orchestra specializing in Contemporary Classical music. I can be heard on Bonnie Pointer's new release "Like A Picasso" (Universal Music Group)
