Praise from Experts & Parents:
MrEvan is the Piano Whisperer....Dr Cheryl MacDonough
We signed our daughter, Layla, up for piano lessons at the age of
five. After one year of learning how to play the piano, I realized that she was ready for more. It was time for 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
--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

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.
--Arlene Rhodes, Homemaker | Laguna Beach
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 he is strict.
--Quynh-Anh Tran, Homemaker, Pharmacist | Laguna
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.
--Linda Raessner, Homemaker | Laguna Beach
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....
Kelly Moody, Homemaker
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.

K.F. and Family
Mr. Evan is a fantastic
piano teacher! He has added skill and technique while fueling my daughter's enthusiasm and interest in the piano. He makes
music fun, introducing students at every age and level to an extensive repertoire, from classical to pop. My daughter looks
forward to each lesson with Mr. Evan, and loves the music she practices each week. Thank you Mr. Evan for bringing music to

Just a quick note to thank
you for all your incredible work with our son Nicholas. Yesterday we found out that Nicholas was chosen to be in the advanced
orchestra at his school. Nicholas is a fifth grader and most everyone who is in advanced orchestra is in 7th or 8th
grade. He was extremely proud to come home and share his accomplishment in being selected. His weekly lessons since
age 7 have been fantastic. The extra time you gave him helped prepare him for the tryout...Thanks Again....Alice and Tim Heinen,
San Clemente Ca
