Evan is not your typical piano teacher. Evan studied composition with the internationally renowned composer, James Barnes, and trumpet with Professor Stephen Leisring. Evan holds a bachelor's degree in music composition from the University of Kansas and he has played piano and trumpet since he was 12. He writes symphonic works for wind band and orchestra as well as pieces for small ensembles and choir. Evan has won the Claude T. Smith Award and the Lawner Prize for composition.

Evan tutors graduate students in music theory, writes music and arrangements for his church choir, and plays the trumpet for worship services. Some of Evan's compositions may be heard on SoundCloud here. One of these works, Pastorale, was played recently at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Overland Park and another composition, Majestic Overture, was played by the KU Symphony Orchestra at the Lied Center in Lawrence.
