In 1999, Executive Director, Kenneth Thompson, personally invited Evelyn Escobedo to teach piano full time at the Musical Arts Center of San Antonio, Inc.
Prior to her acceptance, Evelyn had attended Trinity University where she received her Bachelor of Music (’93) and Master of Arts in Teaching (’94) degrees. For fives years after her graduation, she shared her talents as a classroom music teacher in the public and private school sectors while maintaining an ever-growing piano studio.
Evelyn began her music education at the age of seven taking private piano lessons at the Rosenthal School of Music. She later continued her studies with the Sisters of Divine Providence where she annually participated in the National Guild Auditions. Upon receiving a music scholarship to Trinity, she continued her studies under the tutelage of Eastman graduate, Dr. Carolyn True.
Evelyn is an active member of the San Antonio Music Teachers Association, a subsidiary of the Texas Music Teachers Association and Music Teachers National Association. She has successfully prepared students for the Texas Theory Text achieving gold medal averages as well as the San Antonio Achievement Auditions achieving Superior Ratings.
Her teaching level of preference is the beginner to intermediate student. She has prepared several students to continue their studies with other excellent MACSA instructors.
In addition to teaching, Evelyn has played an active role in the development of MACSA polices and procedures. She currently serves as Community and Student Relations Director.
When Evelyn isn’t teaching her students, she enjoys homeschooling her children and spending time with her husband.
