I am a professional orchestral musician who was classically trained at the world's best music conservatories, and I love teaching music to students of all ability levels! I am currently a member in the Pittsburgh Symphony, but I have played regularly with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra, and I used to be a member of Chicago's Grant Park Orchestra and the Kansas City Symphony.

I graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and I also attended the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Music has always been a huge part of my life, ever since I started playing violin when I was 2 years old, and I would love to share the joy of playing music with you!

Paul is a most excellent violin instructor. He is very patient and kind. I don't feel self conscious about learning the violin as Paul quickly puts me at ease when I am challenged. Paul explains and demonstrates everything so well that it is much easier to catch on. In addition Paul has a very friendly and relaxed disposition that makes him a delight to work with. Without a doubt I highly recommend Paul as a WHOLE but he is UBER Great with novice students such as myself.

I use a hybrid approach of Suzuki and string method books with my violin and viola students. Rhythm/note reading is taught as well as how to create a beautiful tone. Familiar songs are played starting on the first day! I also conduct a string orchestra and students are encouraged to join after achieving a certain level of proficiency to enjoy the benefits of performing with others.

"Amazing teacher

Kelvin is a great teacher. He has a hands-on teaching style integrated with little bits of music theory. Also, he gives you constructive criticism on your originals that doesn't insult your artistic style, but rather works with it. When I first found Kelvin, I told him I wanted to learn an array of instruments so I can understand the workings of a orchestra before I assemble one of my own, and he was in full support of it! Over the course of several lessons, we've listened to several CDs and analyzed the arrangements listening for the entrance of different instruments that add complexity and depth to the music. Kelvin is the ideal teacher for learning the general concepts behind building a song, and learning specifics within songwriting. Assuming you dedicate enough time to your music between lessons, Taking lessons with Kelvin has been the best investment yet on my musical journey."

"My son has been learning violin with Mr. Tigran since last 8 months. He started with very basic 8 months ago and last week his middle school won 12 trophies and he was at the center of the performance. Thanks to Mr. Tigran. Mr. Tigran has the ability to come to student level and bring a change. He is soft, polite and professional. My son is fully involved in violin now and looking towards next level. I am very pleased with his performance and looking forward that one day he will be playing like Mr. Tigran. During the last 8 months there were some occasions where my son was not able to meet the schedule appointment and Mr. Tigran was very accommodating with these situations. Mr. Tigran has the ability to relate music with daily life examples so kids can understand it better. A good communication is extremely important for a teacher and he posses this skill and knows how to apply it. I can see my son will grow very well with his music in future."

"It has been such a great joy to see my son learning so much from Peter. His previous teacher did nothing to teach or improve his skills that I honestly went in to our first class with low expectations. I am very pleased to say how wonderful it has been to see how much my son has learned from the very first day with Peter. I am very happy to have found him. I would definitely recommend him for any of the instruments class' he teaches."
