2010

My musical journey began when I was about 10 years old, when my parents decided to enroll me into a music school. There I studied classical music till I was about 18. When I was 19, I decided to go to school for jazz. After spending a lot of time deliberating schools, I decided to go to CSUN. While there, I studied with some of the best teachers in LA, and some of the best in the world. I studied with musicians like Tigran Hamasyan, Ari Hoenig, Josh Nelson, Ben Wendel, Adam Benjamin, and Vardan Ovsepian. After graduating, I decided to broaden my musical knowledge and began studying all types of music. Because of that, I'm able to teach almost any style. Here is a list of subjects that I offer:

- Jazz
- Classical
- Hip Hop
- R&B
- Pop
- Rock
- Funk
- Music Theory
- Sight Singing
- Harmony
- Counterpoint
- Composition

I believe in designing lessons around each student's goals and needs, so every student gets a personally tailored lesson plan that will help excel them into being an amazing musician. I believe that great music teachers leave lasting impressions on their students. I wish to impart on my students the same lessons and experiences that have influenced me throughout my journey.

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!

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.

I was struggling with my Music Appreciation class and I really needed extra practice. Mesrop was really patient with me, and helped me throughout the semester- even at inconvenient times of the day. Passed with flying colors! Thank you!

Piano is not a fun instrument to learn. Mesrop made it very easy for me to overlook the difficulty in learning by exposing me to different genres and applications, keeping me hooked on learning the basics I was struggling to grasp. Highly recommend.

Ear Training · In studio

My musical experience was playing a lot of bass from tabs or from others telling me where to follow along from. Mesrop was very helpful at helping hone my ear to follow along and distinguish notes and rhythm more clearly.
