I was born Patrik John Maiani, May 21, 1964. To say I was raised in an artistic family would be an understatement of the century. My grandmother was a church organist, my mother a flamenco dancer, my father a world-renowned opera tenor, artist in the oil medium, and both of my older brothers are musicians. At the age of 18, I turned down a scholarship to the Julliard School of Music in New York City, to study and work with my father, opera and composition. At the age of 20 I moved to Los Angeles, CA and quickly became one of the top show pianists for the rich and famous playing at movie premiers Hollywood parties, private engagements, and hotels. Fifteen years later, with ten solo piano CDs, 40 original pop piano and orchestra compositions, and with hundreds of piano students to my credit, I invented a new sheet music notation method. Its a method to read, understand, and play music. My patented system is called EZ/MUZIK. Besides teaching piano lessons, I am an inventor. Check out my website for more information. Willing to travel, have a portable grand as well as well.
My Musical Education Background
I was in front of the piano before I could walk or talk. I started piano lessons at five with the church organist. At the age of seven, I was recommended to the best classical teacher in Santa Barbara, a third generation student of Chopin's. Chopin taught Reif, a concert pianist who taught Aida Ferris, another concert pianist who in turn taught Irma Starr, a tough German-Irish woman who devoted her entire 99 years to teaching piano. I was one of her prized students.
