Ashley Shahbazi


I offer a patient and comfortable environment for students to thrive, while they learn valuable skills handed down from my years of experience and conservatory education. As I too am a current student and performer, I provide a unique student-teacher relationship, to bring the best out of each student through a love and appreciation for the craft.


I have been studying music since the age of 6. I went on to earn my Bachelor's degree from Chapman University, and frequently participate in events and competitions with the Music Teachers Association of California and California Association of Professional Music Teachers. My teachers have included Marlene Feldman, Janice Park, Mona deCesare, and Craig Richey. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in piano performance from California State University, Long Beach.
