About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off.

Started with some basics and built on that. Was very helpful in showing me tuning, proper hand positioning, and how to improve my fingering (those pesky notes). Got a lot for the first class and enough homework to keep me busy! Will be meeting again next week.

Every student has unique needs. Any student will succeed if the instruction is tailored to their learning processes. Since every student learns in a different fashion, it is necessary to use both traditional methodology and Suzuki methodology while teaching. Each student is placed in the program and course that best suits their learning needs. I expect my students to attend the lesson every week, complete all assignments, and listen to directions.

Ear training, in my opinion, is the most valuable aspect of a musician. A musician with a good ear is unstoppable. I incorporate ear training into all of my lessons, even if the student isn't specifically there for it. It is simply the most important tool an artist can have. With a good ear, no song is unlearnable, no composition is impossible, and improvisation at your instrument becomes second nature.

About Mesrop

I am a music lover. I love anything and everything that is music. It has been one of the most consistent things in my life since I was a child, and there's nothing that makes me happier than making that a reality for someone else. I've spent a lot of time studying with different musicians, such

I am a classically trained violinist and singer songwriter who is looking to improve my piano skills. In our lesson I felt like I was able to get the type of thorough instruction I was looking for. We covered position, technical exercises, and classical pieces that I should be proficient in. It was apparent that Mesrop has a very deep understanding of this instrument and can approach it from the technical perspective I was looking for. I’m also happy that I can bring in songs from my songwriter project and get a composition perspective on those when I need it. It’s a very good balance for me as a performer and a songwriter. It’s important to find a teacher who you genuinely like, and Mesrop’s kind personality and professionalism are a great fit for me.
Daniel
I have been wanting to learn piano for some time, and was recommended to Mesrop by a friend. He has been very patient with my pace of learning, which isn't always the fastest, and introduced concepts in a really logical and digestible way. Great guy and teacher, highly recommend!
Arsen
I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

"My 13 year-old daughter had taken voice lessons from Ms. Laura in Maryland for two years. I have to say my daughter was so lucky to have Ms. Laura as her first voice teacher! When my daughter started to show interest in singing in 2016, she knew very little about singing. Ms. Laura was very knowledgeable, personal and supportive. Ms. Laura taught my daughter about vocal anatomy, how to improve her voice presentation and how to avoid possibility of voice loss, inflammation from overuse or misuse. After several months, my daughter made very impressive progress on her voice range and presentation. It was such a treat when I listened to my daughter practicing singing at home. She was getting better and better every day. I was so proud of my daughter. At the same time, I really appreciate Ms. Laura being such a wonderful teacher. Ms. Laura is very personal. She tried to know my daughter as a teacher and as a friend. Based on each student's personality and strength, Ms. Laura chose music that helps each student to grow, but also focus on what needs to be worked on. Ms. Laura was very flexible when we needed to reschedule lessons. We sure miss her!!"

"Sophia has done so much to help me in my academic career. I don't think I would have made it through my piano classes without her. There were a lot of things I knew factually, but I didn't understand conceptually. Learning piano and composition with her has really helped me to understand music theory practically and to actually play it.

I get anxiety when I perform, even privately. She really helps me feel comfortable and helps me not worry about making mistakes. I like a lot of different kinds of music, and she's great about being willing to work on anything I bring up to her, while also helping me stay focused. She helps me create goals, so I can actually see progression."

Tips for Singing: Why Practicing Scales Matters

It's a common misconception that singers and instrumentalists are two completely different types of musicians. They're actually much more alike than you might think! The difference is that, as singers, your instrument is your body! Because of this, as you learn how to sing, you'll likely come across some specific issues of technique. One of the most important things for singers to work on is singing notes that are perfectly in tune. Generally, producing the correct notes for an instrumentalist …
