“Evan is a master of his craft! His orchestrations are brilliantly thoughtful and done in such a way as to allow the ensemble to achieve maximum clarity and sonority. He delivers a superior product and is timely. As a director, having Evan on board gives me peace of mind that the music design and writing will never be a detriment or liability in communicating musical intent. Highly recommend!.”  

Ryan Johnstone – Director of Bands Rouse High School – Leander, Texas

“Evan VanDoren is the PERFECT arranger for any ensemble.  His experience as a band director sets his arrangements apart from most as his knowledge of instrumental pedagogy is always utilized when creating for your group.  The goal is always to set up your students to succeed at the highest levels of excellence.  Additionally, Evan is one of the most professional and timely designers you will have the pleasure of working with.”  

Jeremy Spicer, Owner and CEO Solutions and Specialized Innovations (SASI)

 “Evan VanDoren’s wind arrangements have been an immediate game-changer for our band at Highland Park High School.  His combination of cutting-edge knowledge and understanding of the marching arts, his unique and creative voice, and perhaps most importantly, his command of wind instrument pedagogy from his career as a successful band director, have made him able to provide our students with an exciting, achievable, yet competitive vehicle.  We intend to collaborate with Evan for years to come.”

Reagan Brumley, Former Director of Bands Highland Park High School – University Park, Texas

 “Evan is as good as it gets!  We are using him at College Park HS in The Woodlands, Texas, and we couldn’t be happier.  He is thoughtful in his arrangements to put students in ranges that promote growth but also sound great immediately!  Because of this, our students hear their progress sooner than later and are encouraged by the sounds of the ensemble.  Not only is Evan a great arranger, but he is also fantastic to work with.  He answers EVERY email like we are his only client.  He is a pleasure to collaborate with and allows our voices to be heard in the design discussion.  He checks in regularly and wants to know how he can help. If you get an opportunity to work with Evan, please take it.  You and your program will benefit greatly from his knowledge and expertise!.”

Jeff Gorring, Director of Bands College Park High School – The Woodlands, Texas

“Evan is amazing to work with! He listens to your needs and writes a wonderful book that makes your program sound really mature. He knows how to highlight your strengths and appropriately hide your weaknesses. His pacing is also top notch! Thanks Evan for your effort with our program!”

Evan VanDoren has provided us with a custom music design that has exceeded our expectations. The music is scored well for all of our members, has a wonderful depth of scoring and imagination, and is designed for success at the competitions that we are attending this fall. Most importantly, Mr. VanDoren is a wonderful collaborator and happy to correspond and give us the product and make adjustments that we want for our band program. We could not be happier with our music design this season. This has been a wonderful collaboration with Evan VanDoren.

Garth Gunderson

Director of Bands, James Bowie High School, Austin, Texas
