*** Lesson Details ***
I strongly believe that, if every child would be provided with an ideal environment, would gain extraordinary ability. There are no exceptions. No one can tell how able man is by the nature. What is known is the ability that is spoiled or developed. It cannot be denied that most children speak their native languages beautifully by learning about 3000-4000 words by age 5 or 6. Nothing can clearer demonstrate of the original power of the human mind. Through the years of studying and teaching music I realized that this is the most important concept for developing each kid's talent, to increase his or her ability to the maximum. Therefore I am combining the great methods of teaching violin. The Suzuki method and the Russian school method. Suzuki method helps at the earliest stage of playing an instrument and I am using later Russian school method for more advanced period of studying.

Teaching is my passion and I thoroughly love what I am doing.
Every single child is special to me and every one receives special attention.
My students also play semiannual recital, witch helps them to gain confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 13, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! September 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.
