Evan is one of the best young freelance music engravers working in Canada today. He is frequently called upon by a variety of music industry professionals for a vast array of demanding engraving jobs — from strictly mechanical notation work (transcription/“lifting”, transposition, formatting, part extracting, general editing, etc.) to the more creatively-involved gigs (orchestrating and arranging). For example, a recent commission (through the Confederation Centre of the Arts and leading Canadian musical theatre MD Bob Foster,) called for Evan to produce a brand new edition of the conductor/vocal score for The Charlottetown Festival’s Anne of Green Gables: The Musical, a show estimated to have been seen by more than 2.3 million people and now entering its Guinness World Record-breaking 54th season.

Notation and Engraving Services

Evan’s experience, knowledge of conventions for different instruments and styles, and keen ear for musical detail are key to what sets him apart. He has worked in the fields of pop, rock, musical theatre, folk, latin, hip-hop, experimental, Bollywood, jazz, film music, and Western classical/contemporary music, and has engraved lyrics in English, French, German, Hindi (phonetic) and Ukrainian.

Most importantly: Evan is speedy, cheap, and reliable.
