OFFERING PRIVATE PIANO LESSONS IN THE CONVENIENCE OF YOUR OWN HOME
I like to make each student feels special, valued and encouraged. I enjoy coordinating student recitals and regularly meeting with parents to discuss progress and future plans in both school settings and private tutoring. I strive to help my students enjoy the process of understanding and making music truly sound like a work of art.
Lessons can be taught in English, German, Russian, or Armenian
I have a Doctorate Degree in piano performance and over 14 years of teaching experience.
I was born and raised in Yerevan, Armenia. I have been brought up in the Russian/Soviet traditions of piano performance. I studied in Armenia and entered competitions in order to pursue a career as a concert pianist. My endeavors, however, have led me towards experiences not merely as a soloist but also as a chamber musician. In Armenia I studied with Rosa Tandilyan who was responsible for my early training and for giving me a solid music education as an aspiring young pianist. Her relentless dedication to pedagogy provided me with top rate instruction, and gave me the foundation on which all my professional success was obtained.
After winning the LB Bank Scholarship for Young Musicians (Germany), I moved to Karlsruhe, Germany to study with Professor Olga Rissin at the Karlsruhe University of Music. In Germany, I performed numerous concerts as a soloist, receiving an invitation to record Bach's Busoni Chaconne for the SWR Radio Station in Southern Germany.
In 2010 I moved to the United States and completed an Artist Diploma at Hamline International Piano Institute with Professor Alexander Braginsky. These past three years I have worked as an adjunct music instructor teaching college students and have also taught private lessons to students ranging in all ages — from beginners to advanced.
In 2013, I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. I currently teach over 40 private students and am a faculty member at Utah Valley University.
