My 11 yr old son has been playing violin for a while with the same teacher, and we decided to change teachers to learn other techniques and to pique his interest. We have been with Tigran for almost two months now and there has been a significant
improvement with my son's playing. He seem to acquire back his enthusiasm and passion for playing. He plays with our community Youth Orchestra on the 1st violin
and sits on the 4th chair before starting with Tigran, now he was advanced to the 2nd chair. We are grateful to Tigran for his patience and time. He is very accommodating with his schedule and goes out of his way in teaching my son, on top of it all he is very professional. We would highly recommend him as a great violin teacher.

My 5 year old has been taking violin lessons from Tigran for the past 6 months and she has been thriving and learning faster than we expected. He is exceptionally patient with her and adapts to her aptitude level. We love what she's been able to learn in such a short amount of time thanks to Tigran.

Tigran has been my piano teacher for several months now. I am learning faster than I ever thought I could, and he has always had the right wisdom for me at each step of the process to help me move forward. He is knowledgeable and patient; he is honest about where you need to improve but is always kind. If you are considering getting piano lessons (or any of the other instruments he teaches), I strongly recommend him.

A wonderful teacher

"Teacher Tigran", as my 5-hr-old granddaughter calls him, is really a wonderful teacher and a kind person. He really has a way with understanding the student. My granddaughter thrives in his instruction. I highly recommend him.

Tigran is an excellent instructor.

Tigran has been an excellent instructor to my 16 year old daughter. She started with him last year and has improved tremendously. He has been kind and professional even though the lessons are in my house and I have a 2 and 4 year old continually trying to interrupt. Instead of being frustrated he has been patient and loving towards them and my entire family. We are so blessed to have him as a teacher in our home. Thank you so much.

Tigran is a great teacher!

Tigran has been my violin teacher for almost 4 months. Tigran impressed me with his excellent violin skills. I always feel it's my honor to have such a high-level violinist as my teacher. The same piece of music sounds a world of difference when he plays it. Besides, he is a teacher with integrity. He doesn't choose the easy way of pleasing me with compliments, but instead he points out the source of my problems and wants me to work on them. He also taught me unique effective ways how to improve my violin skills. As a Chinese saying says: "good (Chinese) medicines taste bitter". In order to improve my violin skills, Tigran has the courage and integrity to prescribe the bitter medicine that I need rather than to give me useless placebo. Now I start to feel the joy of playing better. And there is so much more progress to look forward to with Tigran as my teacher! Tigran is the right teacher for serious students.

Tigran is a great teacher!

Tigran is a great teacher! I'm impressed by his high level of skills. The same song sounds so beautiful when he plays it. He immediately knew where my problems are and explained very clearly about how I should improve my skills. I'd like to commit myself to learning from such a great teacher. And I'm excited about my future lessons with him. Thank you for teaching me!

Outstanding

My daughter has taken lessons for three months. She had prioviouly lost her interest in lessons so we tried Tigan as a last ditch effort to have her continue. After two lessons begun to partice with out prompting. She describes Tigan as a kind soft spoken instructor who is positive and uses his creativity to make lessons enjoyable yet challenging.
