Hi! My name is Evan Allenson and I am studying Music Education and Tuba Performance at the University of Colorado. I am a active music educator and performing musician in the Boulder area with an emphasis on secondary band. I am passionate about my student's growth and achievement and as a Colorado native I strive to elevate the community through my work. I'm always lookin for more opportunities to teach, perform, and perfect my craft. 

Interested in private lessons?

My Philosophy and Goals

Ultimately, my goal as an educator is to serve my students and for this reason my lessons and classroom are incredibly student centered and driven. I work to create safe environments where students feel trusted, important, and most importantly have the opportunity to grow. I strive to make experiences for students to cultivate growth instead of results as the process of creating music is most important. My previous teacher and mentor said it best, "we do music for music's sake," and I couldn't agree more. 

Some of my Objectives/Goals:​

  • Community growth enabling everyone to experience music

  • Foster environment that creates personal and group development leading to life-long learners, service-oriented and morally upstanding people

  • Provide students with an appreciation for the music they create and its cultural context

Students Success Stories
