Private Violin Teacher

In my private violin/viola studio, I am helping my students to love the learning process. If a student wants to play an instrument for their enjoyment, he comes to me. If students have ambitions to get prepared for the test or audition, they know they will get help. For students who would like to prepare for the evaluating test, I contribute to preparing for the ABRSM (Associated Board of School of Music) exams. If a student is a beginner, I teach using the Suzuki Method.

I love helping students to achieve what they want. By learning their abilities, I help them to enjoy playing an instrument.

*** 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.

Tigray was very professional yet friendly. My son really enjoyed his first lesson with him.
Hadria S.
Tigran is a skillful, kind, patient and honest teacher. I’m a beginning adult learner and have been progressing very quickly with his help. Tigran’s teaching is structured and organized while keeping the lessons challenging and interesting enough to want to keep going. I value his time and knowledge. I also intend to continue learning the violin from Tigran for the long term. HIGHLY recommend!

If I were to say 15 years on the violin, that would be a shocking time. I did earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Music where I received most of my education in both violin and piano. In my perspective, the violin is such an intricate instrument and I am blessed to work with students in wanting to learn violin. It’s true where putting the hard work in violin takes you where you need to be. It does require Practice! I am willing to work with the student and help them grow in advancing this instrument. Let’s keep in touch!

I believe in developing students’ full potential step by step, as a mentor, to inspire them to foresee a higher vision. To me, every student is an expert learner without limitations. Tailored to each student’s learning progress and needs, my lessons include practice tasks based on pedagogical principles from both the traditional approach and the Suzuki method. My top priorities in teaching include good posture and confidence to perform. I emphasize the importance of aural development by listening to recordings carefully to recognize fundamentals, such as tunes and rhythms, as well as more detailed aspects, such as articulations and tone quality. I also focus on performance practices and interpretations of each musical composition. Overall, I see every lesson as a lesson in life, equipping my students to face challenges with practicable strategies for understanding personal skills, such as patience, determination, consistency, focus, self-motivation, memory, logic, self-awareness with ...

Florette A.
I have been Mr. Tam's student for a little bit over a month now and I have to say he is one of the best, if not the best, teachers that I have ever had. I am a high schooler, and I had been playing the violin for a long time by the time I started taking lessons with Mr. Tam. He wasted no time in beginning the lessons. We started off basically where I had ended with my old teacher, with advanced scales and a piece of my choosing. Throughout the weeks, he follows up by sending me an email asking if I had any questions for him before the next session the following week. He records every session and sends them to me so that I can review my mistakes and listen to the tips that he suggests. Overall, he is an amazing violinist and teacher. He has a great sense of humor and is knowledgeable in the world of classical music. He will explain things thoroughly if you do not understand and seems to take great joy in his profession.
Roxxana
The instructor is very attentive to skills and needs. He is patient and passionate as about teaching the violin. He explains things in an easy to understand manner. He was very enthusiastic about my improvement and stated how happy he was to see improvement. He is knowledgeable about his craft and comes off as a friendly and likable instructor.
