“An exquisite artist with sensitive, sophisticated playing. He is not afraid to take risks and be different from other pianists.” – Eduardo Delgado, world-class pianist and former instructor
Concert artist, piano instructor, music arranger, social media marketer, entrepreneur, video-game music composer, and curious Christian all embody the person of Joshua Chandra. He’s performed classical and jazz with seven orchestras worldwide to date—while dabbling in rag, hymns, and more as a master improviser and instructor of piano, for students of all ages and levels of experience. He is constantly on the hunt to improve and inspire the world and local communities—Joshua regularly handcrafts his own music arrangements for piano students, and founded and directs one of Southern California’s largest music networks on Facebook, SoCal Music Gigs.
A native of sunny southern California, Joshua has been playing since age 4 and began long-term study of the piano at age 6 under the late Marie Estudillo. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree of Music in Piano Performance magna cum laude at Cal State Fullerton in 2012, where he studied on scholarship under the famed Argentine concert pianist Eduardo Delgado. He currently freelances as a concert artist, piano instructor, and music arranger, accompanying various ensembles and local musicians as well as glorifying God on the piano and organ in churches throughout the Inland Empire.
