About Us

Evolution Music Conservatory:

Evolution Music Conservatory is a new type of music education, combining traditional theory and learning with new forms of technology. EMC provides opportunities to learn, play, write, record, and love music. EMC was started by Donato McDermott, whose experience and passion for music led him to the founding of Evolution Music Conservatory. EMC’s goal is to take the current parent-initiated and enforced “once a week” music lessons, to a learning experience that will change the students and make them life long music lovers. EMC is an incredibly creative place where students learn about music and how to play an instrument in a way that that corresponds to their interests. The school encourages students to experiment with other instruments, create their own sound, play music with other students and musicians. We inspire the love of music!
