About Evan Ballinger
Evan Ballinger is a professional keyboardist based in Denver. He frequently performs around the Denver Metro front range area with various musical groups encompassing many different styles, including reggae, afrobeat, blues, jazz, and funk. He has performed at many of Colorado's top stages, including The Gothic Theater, The Bluebird, The Oriental Theater, and the Aggie, and has taken part in three regional tours. In 2016 he was proud to join the pit orchestra for the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company's annual Christmas music and dance production: Granny Dances to a Holiday Drum. While Evan's day to day musical engagements involve popular genres, he credits his twelve years of classical piano education with providing him a strong foundation in performance technique, practice discipline, and music theory. As a teacher, Evan strives to instill these principles in his students, in order to build a musical foundation students will take with them for the rest of their lives.
