Tenaya on SoundBetter

I'm a full-time piano composer, singer and songwriter. I specialize in composing a wide variety of piano compositions and vocal harmonies for demo tracks, commercials and full productions. I utilize my own state-of-the-art studio to create and finalize your desired outcome in a time efficient manner.

Music is my first love. I have 34 years experience as a piano composer. I can create and compose tracks for any genre of music for your movie, video, commercial, relaxing massage cd, song and more. This includes, but not limited to, a variety of piano, synthesizer, vocal, strings, brass and woodwind instruments and beats. In 1999, I experienced my very first recording with Loren Lawner, violinist from the band Jefferson Starship. Since then I have worked in L.A., the Bay Area and Hawaii with various artists and music producers.

I am truly passionate and take pride in my work. I'm 100% committed through the process and genuinely care about bringing your project(s) to life. I absolutely thrive from new challenges and give each client my creative BEST for their projects. I'm truly looking forward to collaborating with other musicians and artists to help them with their musical endeavors.

    Did a good job with my song and was quick with turnaround on the song and revisions. Addressed all tweaks well and friendly and polite to work with.

    VERY nice results working with Tenaya..The piano track she added was spot on and added a very nice flavor to the track.. I will definitely be utilizing her talent on future tracks.. Easy to work with and good vibe all around..

    I've worked with Tenaya on a previous project where she added amazing underlying piano tracks that helped emphasize the melody that made a huge difference in the final product. She has a knack for just "getting it" the first time which makes the process much more enjoyable and affordable. For this track she provided some harmonies for vocals which also made a big difference. I highly recommend her for piano tracks and any type of harmonies whether vocal or piano. Thanks Tenaya!

    Tenaya is the best! Incredibly easy to work with, very talented and very flexible re: timelines. I had a lot going on and she worked with me and didn’t pressure at all which was awesome. LOVE the music she composed for me.

    As a producer who has had experience recording Tenaya multiple times as both a vocalist and on piano, I can 1000% attest not only to her complete attention to detail, flexibility, range and easygoing cooperative attitude but her incredible ability to surprise you with a classically trained level of musicianship with the fire of emotional energy needed to really make songs POP! She is a great (not so secret now) weapon for making tracks stand out in the very muddy waters of the industry.

    Tenaya has an original, heartfelt tone which was perfect for my rock project. Her improvs were on point and she was able to get the feeling I wanted for my song. Her passion for her work is undeniable. I can't wait to work with her again for my next project!

    We worked with Tenaya several years ago. She was professional, thorough and fun to work with. Would love to work with her again. Thanks Tenaya

    I worked with Tenaya in the studio last year for several songs. Her work ethic, focus and ability to find the right piano / synth sound for my songs in a short amount of time (mainly 1st takes) was amazing to watch. Not to mention it saved me a lot of money by her being able to dial it in right away with very little direction. Her vocal harmonies also added a lot of soul and another dimension to the songs bourbon and bitters, missing you, so far away, and me and you. I believe she has them posted here for reference. I will be working with her again and highly recommend her for any project.
