Piano playing is not just about playing the notes.
Music to me is a way of communicating love and passion as well as the deep true feelings inside the player’s heart. The first step of performing music is to understand how to convey feeling with the notes and using musical dynamics such as tempo, rhythm, and tone. A true musician makes the music come alive with feeling.

I started learning music when I was six years old with Orf lessons. I started piano lessons when I was eight with well-known, professional Armenian teachers.
Since the age of 18, I have attended several educational music classes such as Music Theory and Music Teacher Training in Sydney, Australia, and at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Canada.
I have performed publicly and received a first-place award for best piano performance at the Beethoven Music Festival in 2004.
I have had the chance to teach Piano in several Music schools such a PlayMusic and Dolce Melody in BC, Canada.
I had performed in several concerts as a pianist and present my love of music to the public.
During these 12 years of teaching piano experience, I invented different methods of teaching, especially for children. I could be able to implant a standard method of practicing for the piano which my students have benefited a lot from that and this method has transformed their attribute toward piano practicing and performing viewpoint.
I have thrived passion and entered feelings and life into my students' performances.
