I do this through providing fun, laser-focused blueprints that anyone can immediately implement, whether you're looking to get better at producing, mixing, mastering, or licensing music.

Core Values

  • Passion: Our music is what makes us unique, and no matter the challenges we face, making music is an expression of our best selves. I strive to not only inspire your passion, but to help you channel it into something you will feel excited sharing with the world. And we'll probably even to have a little fun along the way!
  • Empathy & Respect: We're all on a journey of self-improvement together. Your music might not be where you want it yet (I get frustrated too!), but the only way to grow is to have empathy for yourself, your creations, and each other. I've been there, and I promise to treat you and your music with respect and empathy.
  • Connection: Music is as old as humanity, and one of the surest ways we connect with each other. I strive to genuinely get to know my students and their goals, so that I can guide them to achieve transformation they've been dreaming of.

About Me

My name is Evan, and I've been making music since around 3rd grade. I'm from San Diego, California, but I've lived in Washington, DC for the last 20 years.

I have a full-time day job, but have created systems that have allowed me to produce dozens of songs a year in my spare time.

My songs have been on Netflix, TV, an award-winning indie film, and NPR’s “All Thing Considered.”

In addition to being a music producer, I am passionate about teaching people how they can make professional-sounding music and earn money licensing it, all in their spare time.

Thousands of musicians, like yourself, have trusted me to guide their musical journey. My YouTube videos have been watched nearly a million times. And my story has been in Forbes, Side Hustle Nation, and the Side Hustle School.

You can listen to some of my tracks here. These hip hop tracks were made in Reason for music licensing.

If you want to know a little bit more about my taste in music, here are my 3 favorite classic rock albums.

And if you want to see some of my music that I license, here are some of my collections:

What I've Learned

I understand what it's like to have a hard drive full of half-finished "demos" that I'm both proud of and embarrassed by.

Like you, I was frustrated that no one would ever hear my music. And I didn't feel completely fulfilled by my day job.

When I first started out, my songs sounded amateurish, and so I never committed to finishing them. Sometimes they would randomly turnout ok, but I had no idea how to sell them or even how to repeat the process to make another decent mix.

Through hard work, trial and LOTS of error, I discovered how to produce professional sounding recordings and start making income by licensing my music.

My passion for making music, and the need for additional financial security led me to refine a system that has earned me thousands of dollars a year through music licensing. Plus I have the satisfaction of knowing that my music is being enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people.

It's time to stop being embarrassed to share your music with friends/the world, and to gain the additional financial security available through music licensing. Let me show you techniques to stop wasting your limited free time in your home studio, so you can actually finish your songs, upload them, and get paid!

I’m here to teach you how you can also achieve this.
