The Success Snowball
by MrEvan 
 
Every teacher, no matter what subject, who is interested in the success of their students studies what works when it comes to motivating their students. Most of us think that practicing makes successful students. I have found the feeling of success is the key to further progress. Set up the conditions where a student feels successful and....you will get success!  
A student who feels successful WANTS to learn more. Their mind BECOMES open.
 
Here's a for instance -   one of my  students won a medallion at a MTAC  Bach Festival. He said: "I didn't know I could ever win a prize like that!"
He now anxiously looks forward and is preparing for the next "competition".
His Mom framed the Medallion and  Certificate and placed them framed above the piano where we both can see it.  
 
Success opens the door to confidence, knowledge and fun.  Success expanded the potential of my young student...only 9 years old, his  mind is willing to accept on new challenges. I use several levels of rewards to increase the chances that my students will be proud of their accomplishments and keep the success snowball rolling...

MrEvan is the Piano Whisperer....Dr Cheryl MacDonough

 

We were looking for a Piano teacher in our area with an emphasis in Jazz and Blues for our Son as our Son is preparing to audition for acceptance to The Orange County School Of The Arts (OCSA) Jazz Band program. Thankfully we found Mr. Evan Sachs. Mr. Evan has done a wonderful job teaching our Son Jazz Piano and Improvisation. Our Son loves working with Mr. Evan and he has excelled at a tremendous rate since working with him. In addition to teaching our Son Jazz Piano, Mr Evan has also helped our Son with his confidence in live performances. After meeting his audition requirements, my Son was accepted to attend OCSA for the 2014/2015 year -- he is really excited. We feel the specific attention, interest, and knowledge that Mr. Evan gave our Son played the major part in his acceptance to this prestigious school.

After one year of learning how to play the piano, I realized that our daughter Laylashe was ready or a new instructor.  I diligently researched and interviewed several piano teachers and after speaking with Mr. Evan and receiving multiple recommendations from friends, we decided that Mr. Evan would be a perfect fit for our family.  I couldn't be happier with the progress that she has made with Mr. Evan. He is so motivational and gives her the confidence and encouragement she needs to succeed with the piano.  Each week, he comes prepared and ready to teach new things and to inspire a love of music. Mr. Evan is patient and relates well with those of all ages. Since starting lessons with Mr. Evan, my now seven year old daughter has gained a true love for the piano. She will practice without being asked and has so much love and respect for her talented instructor. He is extremely generous with his time, which demonstrates his true love and passion for being a teacher. After seeing our daughter's immediate progress, my husband decided that he too, was ready for piano lessons with Mr. Evan. It has been incredible to see the quick progress my husband has made in the past year with Mr. Evan. Mr. Evan teaches music fundamentals, but also makes learning fun. We are so blessed to have found Mr. Evan!

Evan Sachs is a kind, gentle, extremely knowledgeable piano teacher who teaches very young to older piano students equally well. My highest recommendation.

Howard Richman, Professor of Piano Performance, Cal Institute of the Arts

 

Evan gave my son a great background to music. His piano lessons are not only good musically, but the practice schedule helped prepare my son for the demands of homework, reading and math skills.

 --Peggy Lacayo, City of San Clemente Music Director 

 

Mr. Evan was referred to our family by trusted friends...and we could not be happier!  Evan is a magnificent talented musician, but his true gift is his ability to connect with his students and pull that musical talent that is "somewhere" in us all.  I am truly amazed at his patience, dedication and ability to develop our daughter's piano skills. He is always challenging her to achieve her goals via a positive and encouraging manner. We've seen tremendous growth and development in our daughters abilities from day one, " trying to figure out where and what is middle C",  to reading and playing complete beautiful pieces that wows us, grandparents, and friends alike. Nothing is better than seeing your child develop new skills and gaining confidence in new endeavors... and for that,  a big THANKS to Mr. Evan! Simply stated, I highly recommend Evan to any family that wants a caring wonderful world class Piano instructor.  Sincerely,

John and Carla Comes

We have known Mr. Evan Sachs since our son Garrett who was in 4th grade.  With no prior piano lessons or experience with piano teachers, Evan worked with him one evening a week and today Garrett (a high school sophomore) is an accomplished musician with a broad repertoire of classical, jazz and pop pieces.  We have enjoyed watching our son perform at many recitals...and at the Baroque Festival where he won a ribbon performing a challenging piece.  We have been so pleased that we have asked Evan to work with our youngest son Paul...Paul is beginning to show the same encouraging progress that Garrett showed...

Evan's reward system and enthusiasm are contagious and makes her feel excited about her piano lessons. We are so happy to have him as our piano teacher.

Evan is very patient with my two kids. He has a sense of humor, and that's what they need. Just because a piano teacher is a professional does not mean you have to be strict.

I think his teaching his superior because he teaches with heart and true concern. He emphasizes music theory and monitors the progress of the student. He has a genuine love and appreciation for music and what he's doing. My daughter has more pride in herself because of her accomplishments.

After studying jazz styles with you, just wanted to say thank you for the "keys" to playing the music I love.
With your simple, fun exercises I can feel the growth. Learning has finally become fun. I'm having a ball!

Mister Evan is a wonderful piano teacher for both my children.  We have had many piano teachers in the past, and he is by far the best.  He has so much patience and really makes learning fun.  My little boy sometimes struggles with learning new things and has a very high learning curve. Mister Evan has been so patient with him. He really has a knack for working with special needs kids.  I never have a problem getting them to practice and he makes piano lessons fun.  My children WANT to do well to please Mister Evan. .He is a wonderful motivator....

Evan is a very patient piano teacher and piano lessons are fun with him. As an adult student, I've needed that.  When he plays, I learn from his example.  I appreciate his calming demeanor.--Betty Van Malsen, Accountant, Laguna Beach.

Evan, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the work you do furthering Ellyse's abilities at the piano. She completely enjoyed the experience of playing "Classical Gas" with her Dad at the last recital. The music you put together for her to accompany the guitar was truly amazing. Ellyse will continue to grow in her skills and love for the piano under your instruc

Both my 5 year old son and  6 year old daughter take lessons from Mr. Evan. In only four months, they have learned so much! They are always so eager for him to come over and show them new things. He maintains a high expectation of excellence while balancing the relationship with them in a fun way.

During the week they practice and play over and over. On a daily basis they practice throughout the day totaling about an hour every day! I often have to ask them to come off the piano. Mr. Evan's positive and encouraging teaching methods has really made them confident and self-motivated to continually practice and try new things.
