Mike Esfahani began his music studies at an early age immersing himself in piano, theory, composition, and orchestration. He has held positions as President and later Vice President of the Music Club at Irvine Valley College organizing concerts and community events. At Irvine Valley, he was one of only two students awarded the Tonya Reed Gardner Memorial Endowed Scholarship. A graduate of California State University, Fullerton, Mike holds a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance, Magna Cum Laude, as well as a Master of Arts in Music History and Literature. At Fullerton, Mike was honored with several awards including second prize finisher in the 2007 Music Associates competition, the Musicology Award for Excellence in Research 2010, and has been inducted into the Pi Kappa Lambda National Musical Honor Society—a distinction reserved by invitation only to graduates at the top of their class.

Active as a soloist and teacher, Mike has given seminars on piano and music history at community centers throughout Orange County and has been a member of "Pianists in Performance," a group of pianists that tour the greater-Los Angeles area giving concerts for fundraisers and charity events.

Mike currently dedicates the majority of his musical life to education. Along with teaching piano privately at Rancho Canyon Music, he also lectures at California State University, Fullerton.
