Concert artist, piano instructor, music arranger, social media marketer, entrepreneur, and curious Christian are all phrases which 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 arrangements of music for his piano students personally, and is glad to connect musicians through his SoCal Music Gigs Facebook network.
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. While a chronic thumb injury has taken him off of the international stage, he continues to freelance as a piano instructor and arranger while he accompanies various ensembles and musicians throughout SoCal and glorifies God on the piano and organ in churches throughout the Inland Empire.
