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 Layla 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.

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...
