Stanley Christ Berger, DMA, Recording Artist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in music production and composition.
Delving into the realm of music from a formative age, Dr. Berger was heavily influenced by his father, who taught him how to play the accordion at just 7 years old. Due to his father’s passion for the industry, he dedicated much of his former years to music composition, specifically on the piano and violin. Pursuing formal education, he received a Master of Music from the University of Redlands in 1981 and a Doctor of Musical Arts from Claremont University in 1994. Soon thereafter, he earned an additional Master of Arts in education from California State University San Bernardino in 1996.
While pursuing his love for the craft, Dr. Berger worked as a teacher at Damien High School in Laverne, CA, from 1984 to 1986 and subsequently spent the remainder of his career in the same position at Chino Valley Unified School District in California until his retirement from education in 2018. During this time, he still actively pursued music and performed with three-time Grammy Award-winning soul musician Barry White on his world tour. In addition, he was the director and organist of the St. Anthony’s Church Choir in Upland, CA, from 1999 to 2004 and director of the Chino Valley Community Chorus from 1990 to 2004.
Throughout his career, Dr. Berger has composed two solo piano albums, “Winter” and “Piano Sketches,” as well as one jazz album “Kool Shoes.” In addition, he was the composer of the song “Don’t Say Goodbye,” which won an American Song Festival Award in 1980. A former member of the National Education Association and California Teachers Association, he is happily married and the proud father of two children and four grandchildren. Looking towards the future, he intends to compose and produce more music in various experimental styles, including jazz.
