I had a great first lesson with Armen.
He immediately identified some areas of improvement and I really liked his style which is rigorous, demanding and rewarding at the same time.
Can't wait to our next lesson,

I had a very pleasant first lesson experience. Armen is undoubtedly a talented violinist and a very knowledgeable instructor. As soon as you meet him, you understand that you're in good hands. I'm definitely looking forward to my next lesson.

Incredibly talented teacher

I am so grateful to have found Armen for my continued violin studies. He is very clear and direct with giving direction that has already helped me improve my technique a whole lot. Plus, he makes the lessons focused, yet fun :) I would recommend him in a heartbeat! :)

Teacher is awesome

He spends great time teaching you and getting right down to business I've learned so much in such little time, I feel confident that in less time than imagined I wll be playing ike a pro.

best teacher I have ever had

I studied with other teachers in the past. What separates Armen from others is his passion, patience and professionalism when it comes to teaching violin. He makes something as complicated as playing the violin simple and fun. He analyzes the weaknesses and the strengths of the student and tailors a suitable program for the student to excel. In addition, he brings so much culture and flavor to his style of teaching, this from playing in world renowned orchestras and groups such as Yanni and others. He is by far the best teacher I have ever had.
