My name is Evan. I'm a live and studio guitarist who has worked with some huge names in the industry. From playing guitar in the multi platinum selling band, Great White Ft. Jack Russell, to working in the studio with members of the Billy Joel, Elton John, The Offspring, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Jewel, John Fogerty, and Martina McBride bands, I've been fortunate to turn my particular skills and talents into a career. However, playing is not my only passion. Teaching has always held a special place in my heart because seeing a student, of any age, being able to do something they couldn't do before or have something challenging click in a way that makes sense to them is a feeling that can't be matched. It is an accomplishment not only for the student who is learning, but for myself as an instructor. My teaching style is simple: get the student playing. There are plenty of instructional books or videos that will give you confusing concepts impossible to apply. I'm different. I will get you playing what you want, quickly and effectively. Not only that, but I will explain why it works and how to apply it to anything you can dream of. Music is not a one-size-fits-all lesson plan. I teach for the individual because that's how I was taught and that's the reason I have had so much success and so much fun!

Guitar

My name is Evan Haymond. I've taught guitar for the last few years while working professionally in the music business. I was taught guitar for eight years by Robby Lochner, current guitarist for Great White ft. Jack Russell and Herman Rarebell. He has also worked with Cherie Currie, Rob Halford, and Eddie Money. In high school, I was a part of the honors band program. I won multiple awards in my four years including Most Outstanding Instrumental Musician. I went on to further my education at Orange Coast College in Southern California where I majored in music and received perfect marks in my music classes. It was then that I was hired as a touring guitarist for Celeste Kellogg. Since then, I have played guitar live and in the studio with artists from all over the world, big and small, and have been lucky enough to share my knowledge and experience with aspiring guitarists of all ages.
