I’m Mark Evans. As a composer and writer, I have been deeply concerned about students emerging from school unfamiliar with any music other than what they’ve encountered through Social Media.

Many haven’t read a book that hasn’t been assigned to them. Others are unfamiliar with the most basic facts of our history but know every detail of today’s celebrity culture.

This site will provide you with the tools, the resources, and the inspiration to encounter the best of the past which shouldn’t be forgotten, the best of the present, which shouldn’t be ignored, and the best of the future, which shouldn’t be undiscovered.



You’re never too young or too old to begin learning about the best of our culture, music, books, and the visual arts. On this web site, we devote the same energy and attention to preserving our cultural resources as many others to preserving our natural resources.


Become acquainted with the books and articles we publish. You’ll find “Mark! My Words: How to Discover the Joy of Music, the Delight of Language, and the Pride of Achievement in the Age of Trash Talk and Cultural Chaos. It will explain how and why we find ourselves in a cultural crisis and what you can do about it for your family.Check it out here.

You’ll also find “Our Musical Heritage,” a great resource for every parent and grandparent on four great genres of American music, concert works, jazz, musical theater, and film music. Read our Blog on this site! It’s filled with articles, videos, and audio files that can help you.
