Evan C. Allston, MA

About Evan

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. ...

My sons are learning so much in a short amount of time! Evan makes learning music so much fun. They say he's the best teacher they've had so far! I have to agree. He's an all around nice guy who is down to earth and amazingly talented.

Robert T. Jamaica Plain, MA

Development of technique is critical on the Upright Bass. Understanding of the finger board and its positions will be the primary concern, so that the music will be able to flow unhindered! Studies in Jazz, Classical, Blues can be undertaken, as well as the art of improvising bass lines and solos.
