LA pianist Ernie Scarbrough is one of those rare artists who is equally at home playing in an orchestra, big band, Country band, Rock band, or Jazz combo. He has directed more than 20 musical theatre productions, including a national tour, and is currently conducting and writing for three choirs, one of which performed recently at Carnegie Hall. Ernie’s music is evocative and functional, beautiful and edgy, sometimes challenging, and sometimes breathtakingly simple. He brings us original works in the Classical, Jazz, Pop, and Rock genres.
Ernie Scarbrough is a member of the National Music Honor Society, and he received his Composer's Certificate from Indiana University South Bend in 1996. He has been the resident Music Director at Playhouse On The Square in Memphis, TN, for 3 years, and he was Associate Music Director and keyboard player for the national tour of "Patsy! A Musical Tribute to Patsy Cline." Ernie has done commercial and soundtrack work for clients such as Bayer, Coachman, and Notre Dame Sports, and his full orchestral work, "Solitsism," was premiered by the Elkhart County Symphony Orchestra.

There are plenty of emotional pivot points to be able to use this piece as underscoring when stylized music from days gone by fits the bill. Instrumental, Classical Music, Baroque Period
This solo piano piece is an example of what Jerry Lee Lewis might have written if he had spent some time in a European conservatory studying the classics while listening to acid-jazz. This quirky piece would be great under action footage, fast-image presentations or a visual collage. Instrumental, Action Music, Action Theme Crime
Straight from the turn of the 20th Century salons in Paris, this original solo piano piece will have your body and your emotions swaying with its pulsing chordal harmony. Pensive and somewhat sad, its journey over the entire length of the keyboard leaves you wanting to play it over and over. Instrumental, Theme Music, Street music
