Our Teachers

Evan Leontis is a musician, music teacher and mom who loves teaching and sharing her love of music with others. She performs on the opera and concert stages of New England as well as in a local bluegrass band. Evan started Southern Vermont Musikgarten because she wanted to share the joy of making music with the littlest members of the community.

In addition to teaching early childhood music, she currently serves on the voice faculties of Keene State College and Vermont State Univerisity where she teaches voice and diction. She has previously served on the voice faculties of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, the New England Conservatory Preparatory School, Guilford College, and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute. 
She has presented workshops and masterclasses at Harvard University, Oakland University, the Boston Conservatory, Texas A & M Kingsville, the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, Keene State College, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, the New School of Music, and Greensboro College. She serves frequently as an adjudicator and clinician for high school and university programs.

Evan holds the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of North Carolina Greensboro, the Masters of Music degree in vocal performance from Boston University and the Bachelors of Music degree in vocal performance from the Eastman School of Music. She grew up in Bowling Green, OH where she began studying piano at age 6 and violin at age 9, before beginning her voice studies at age 15.  She enjoys cooking vegetarian food, traveling, running, practicing yoga, and hiking with her husband, bass trombonist Travis, twin toddlers Zoe and Genevieve, and their dog Gavi in her spare time.
