Biography


Dr. Lee Evans (Professor of Music) completed degrees at NYU and Columbia University, receiving his MA and EdD from the latter. Author, composer, and arranger of approximately 100 music books (Hal Leonard, publisher) in the U.S., 38 in Japan, and 2 in the former Soviet Union, Evans has succeeded in bringing to keyboard students and teachers an understanding of and feeling for jazz. His jazz series is an outgrowth of his belief that jazz can be broken down into identifiable elements and taught in a methodical, sequential manner compatible with classical teaching methods. His most recent piano publications for The FJH Music Company include Color Me Jazz, Books 1 and 2 for late elementary to early intermediate levels; Ole! Original Latin-American Dance Music, and Fiesta! Original Latin-American Piano Solos, both for the intermediate level. His most recent book (2013) for Hal Leonard Corporation is entitled Crash Course In Chords. Evans is also co-author/composer of Keyboard Fundamentals, 6th Edition (Stipes Publishing), a piano method for adult beginners.
