Bess Evans grew up in a family of musicians, so it is no surprise she has made her career out of singing, songwriting and performance. Bess is a dynamic musician who loves people, and has a passion to see them reach their potential, both musically and personally.
After performing in both cover and original bands for over a decade, Bess started teaching in 2010 in a private studio and from two local schools in sunny North Queensland. In 2013, she graduated with honours from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and has since started her own business in Brisbane, sharing her love of music with students of all ages. In July 2016 Bess graduated from the QLD Con with her Masters in Music Studies, Vocal Pedagogy.
Bess desires nothing more than to help her students flourish as musicians and performers; and to help them reach their potential – finding their true quality of sound!
