Welcome to my website!!! My name is Chuck (AKA PianoManChuck) and I'm a professional piano player in the Los Angeles (California) area. I love playing piano, and play solo piano gigs at private parties, lounges, restaurants, weddings, funerals... wherever. I play mostly Classic Rock but cover a much wider variety (including original piano pieces for funerals). Because its strictly piano, people absolutely enjoy the music without losing the ability to talk among themselves!
I'm also a well-known digital piano product reviewer! For info about my digital piano product reviews, demos, comparisons, how to's, etc, see the Product Review page.
For those interested in having me as a pianist for their location: For samples of me playing, click on the SetList (watch/play) button on the left where you can watch and hear me play. For a more complete list, click on the Song List button on the left.
I've recently started to offer MIDI files of some of my piano covers and originals. More will be added as time goes on, but this is brand new. MIDI files are an exact reproduction of what I played on my piano/keyboard... with that, you can bring it in to certain programs and display the music notation so that you can play the song exactly the way I did! Synthesia is an excellent program that not only displays the notation, but also a visual animation of the notes that are about to be played! CLICK HERE for those files!
Restaurants, Lounges, Bars, Hotels, Private Parties & Events or just a home gathering, click on Services to the left! I'm much different than your typical pianist!
And while unfortunate, funerals are also a part of life. I cover those too.
Some background about me: I love playing piano! I started on a toy piano at age 5. Started taking lessons at age 6, gave my first piano recital at age 6.
I grew up in the Detroit area and was classically trained, privately with the Dean of Music at Wayne State University at that time (Julius Chajes) from age 6 thru 15. I have perfect pitch, can play just about anything I hear. Whatever music is in my head can easily be transferred to my fingers... its just something I've been able to do all my life. I love to write and compose my own music - check out my YouTube channel by clicking on the Youtube button to the left.
As for Restaurants, lounges, private parties and events... my schedule constantly changes. Whenever you need amazing piano music for your event (any size event, home, venue, etc), simply contact me.
My most relaxing and creative activity is to write original music.
You rock the house!
