Hello! My name is Evan, and I love to play and teach percussion!
I enjoy working with students to develop their unique artistic voice on a variety of percussion instruments as well as a wide range of technical skills that facilitate many kinds of music-making and learning.
I studied at The Juilliard School for my master's degree, the University of Michigan for my bachelor's degree, and the Interlochen Arts Academy. I currently perform with Miami’s genre-bending chamber orchestra Nu Deco Ensemble, the New World Symphony, and have upcoming performances with Miami City Ballet. In addition, I run my own chamber music ensemble called Conduit. I am proud to have shared the stage with Grammy-winning musicians, including members of the ensemble Eighth Blackbird, the organist and songwriter Cory Henry, and vocalist Hila Plittmann. I have performed in venues such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, MoMA, the Arsht Center, the deYoung Museum in San Franciso, and Carnegie Hall.
I work with students of all ages and ability levels and I look forward to working with you on all things percussion!

Hello! I'm Evan, and I love to play and teach percussion!
I studied percussion at The Juilliard School for my master's degree, University of Michigan for my bachelor's degree, and the Interlochen Arts Academy. I am Miami-based, and I regularly perform with New World Symphony, Nu Deco Ensemble, Conduit, and Miami City Ballet.
I enjoy working with students to help them reach their full potential in music, and in life. I use percussion as a vehicle to teach excellence, no matter what path the student ends up pursuing as a career.
I have performed around the world in Europe, Africa, and North America in venues such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, the deYoung Museum in San Francisco, and Carnegie Hall. I have shared the stage with Grammy Award-winning musicians including members of the ensemble eighth blackbird, song-writer and organist Cory Henry, and vocalist Hila Plitmann. These experiences all inform my teaching style and the breadth of information I am able to share with my students.
Please let me know when you would like to set up a lesson and we can work together to reach your goals!
