"He is easily able to adapt to any musical setting." (Brett Ecklund, KX 93.5 FM Jazz Quest Radio Host) Bijan Taghavi, 18, is a jazz pianist who recently accepted a full scholarship well-nigh to study at the Manhattan School of Music for undergraduate studies. He was the featured pianist performing with Grammy artist Nestor Torres, and has been featured in the Orange County Register as the 2013 “Young Star of the Future" for his prize winning performance with the South Coast Symphony. Classically trained under the mentorship of Robert Estrin, Bijan discovered jazz his junior year in high school, aided by his perfect pitch assimilating music instantly. Bijan has since studied under scholarship at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston during the summer of 2014; studied with the legendary Barry Harris, Jetro da Silva, Garry Dial, Marc Rossi, Alan Pasqua, and Joey Sellers; and is a regular guest on Jazz Quest Radio KX 93.5 Laguna Beach, California. The multi-instrumentalist also demonstrates incredible facility on the guitar, acoustic and electric bass; is stylistically diverse across a myriad of genres spanning Classical, jazz, latin, blues, hip-hop, funk, Persian, and various ethnic styles; and is incredibly adept at music technology, using his recording capabilities at his in-home recording studio to produce an online instructional series as Virtual Sheet Music's "Jazz Piano Expert,” featured on their “Artist Series.” Performances have included Soka Performing Arts Center, Croce's Park West, Renee & Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, Berklee Performance Center, Bowers Museum, Schumacher Hall, La Sierra University, Malibu Symphony, and Laguna Sound Recording Lounge. Bijan also hosted the weekly Jazz Night at Port in Corona Del Mar, which showcased and brought together Southern California's finest jazz musicians in the trio setting: including Luther Hughes, James Yoshizawa, Chris Hon, Adam Gardner, John Hatton, among others. Current projects involve a mix of traditional jazz and ethnic idioms, particularly fusing jazz and Persian music in hopes of promoting world peace through the hybrid of each nation's music.
