"Emile Pandolfi is not only a master at the piano, but a funnyman to boot."

  Emile Pandolfi is, quite simply, a master of the piano. His intimate understanding of both classical and pop music allows him to pour an expansive range of emotion into his arrangements of movie themes, musicals, and standards. In his show, he'll often include a performance by one of his heroes: Chopin, Debussy, & Rachmaninoff.  His mastery of musical timing has spilled into his love of friendly comedyhe deftly moves his audience from giggles to tears, from inspiration to guffaws. 

 

 With the release of his book, Play It Like You Mean It, Emile is currently concentrating on speaking engagements and piano seminars

Throughout his 30+ year performance & recording career, Emile Pandolfi has always made sure  his audiences get more than beautiful music. They also get an a lot of laughter and fun, as Emile’s friendly humor—honed during his time as the house pianist at the famed Comedy Store in Los Angeles—punctuates the performance. Whether delivering a concert or a seminar, his storytelling and comedy, combined with Emile’s incredible technique and  piano artistry, make for an  experience that is  truly memorable.
