We have had the pleasure of knowing Evans for the past five years. During this time he has taught my daughter piano and also accompanied her for all of her flute exams. He has a warm and friendly manner and Sara thoroughly enjoyed all of her lessons and rehearsals with him. Evans is always positive and encouraging. He shares his love of music which brings out the best in his students. Evans is a true professional and Sara had the security of knowing that whatever happened in her flute performances, he would keep it on track!
Thank-you so much for everything you have done for Sara. You are a great role model for your students and we feel so lucky that Sara has had the opportunity to work with you. We will look forward to another great year next year!
