Hi, I'm Joshua Chandra, a CSU Fullerton piano graduate. I accompany for a wide range of events:
► Luncheons & dinners (as background music, being in the limelight, and leading group sing-alongs)
► Weddings (I've played for two weddings and can furnish almost any music requested)
► Funerals (I've played for three funerals for families of different religious beliefs)
► Recitals (experience with brass, woodwinds, strings, vocalists, and more)
► Concerts (I've played in 3 piano trios, and with chamber ensembles here and orchestras in Indonesia, Germany, and Italy)
► Ballets (I accompanied The Nutcracker thrice as a CSUF orchestra and Rio Hondo Symphony musician, for the Nouveau Chamber Ballet)
► Rehearsals, Auditions & Recording Sessions (I myself also have basic recording equipment)

I also coach and teach piano, music theory/general music appreciation, and more.

Some of my music is here:

My music online is mostly solo piano, so I can give references from musicians who have worked with me; let me know what you'd like!

► I can sight-read any sheet music that you have, whether clef-&-staff notation or lead sheets/chords.
► I can arrange music for different ensembles, or transcribe audio into sheet music by ear via perfect pitch.

I am primarily classically trained, but also have experience with jazz (Gershwin), gospel, pop, and a bit of rag (Joplin). Over the past four years, I was the pianist and organist for two churches throughout LA County, where I sight-read weekly hymns while improvising and transposing on them (I can sing while playing as well). I accompanied their church choirs under a conductor and have occasionally conducted. I've performed in coordination with cantors and congregations in Catholic masses as well, and can improvise my own harmonies for hours on end in a quiet, tranquil manner. I also know several Christian hymns and Christmas songs by heart.

I usually go by a flat rate per event, not per hour. This is mostly determined by the event's location, duration, and specific needs (I have a Casio CDP-220R available for those lacking a piano).

I teach piano privately and have taught at a music studio in Orange County. I'd love to take a stab at online lessons via Skype or Google Hangouts (for an initial $20/lesson, via PayPal).

I am online at http://www.joshuachandra.com and http://www.facebook.com/joshua.chandra; I do exist! I manage the musicians connection group SoCal Music Gigs @ http://www.facebook.com/groups/SoCalMusicGigs so if you're on Facebook, check that out if you are a musician or are looking for musicians of other instruments/styles.

Please reach me about your event directly through the contact details on my business card image, or on behalf of anyone you know who may be seeking a musician or teacher. Thanks, and have a great day!
