Violin, Viola and Music Theory Lessons for all ages and skill levels!

Methodology

I provide an all-inclusive musical education and learning experience to my students, focused on patience, inspiring a love of music and building confidence. I strongly believe that incorporating the fundamentals of music theory early-on and creating a personal connection with my students is the key to their success and the motivation behind their growth and endurance.

Lessons include:
βœ“ Curriculum book and packet
βœ“ Learning exciting repertoire
βœ“ Scales and exercises
βœ“ Rhythmical games
βœ“ Music theory and history
βœ“ Genre education
βœ“ Proper posture and bowing techniques
βœ“ Practice technique and strategies
βœ“ Setting and achieving goals
βœ“ Audition and/or competition preparation
βœ“ Instrument selection and advice
βœ“ Instrument care instructions

Background

My name is Ashot Dumnanyan and I am a classical violinist, music arranger and violin/viola instructor offering private and personalized lessons online, in-studio or in-home in Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley areas. Fluent in English, Armenian and Russian, I bring my European background and passion into my teaching. With a Master of Music in Violin Performance from one of the leading musical institutions of Armenia, the Komitas State Conservatory of Yerevan, I am an active member of various orchestras. My extensive credentials and performance experience inspire me to pass on firsthand knowledge to others.

To keep students engaged throughout their lessons, I customize my delivery to fit the personality and skill level of every individual. No student is too young or too old. I embrace the unique challenges that come with teaching a variety of ages and levels and supporting the achievable goals of each student with patience and commitment.

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with Ashot since January and we already see a lot of improvement in her playing techniques. We also appreciate the quick communication he offers and that's the main advantage of choosing a private teacher over a music school. Better service!
