Gayane Bareghamyan Violin Perfomer and Teacher

Gayane Bareghamyan is a Violinist based in Toronto, Canada where she performs and teaches.

In Performances

Gayane likes to collaborate with musicians in various chamber ensembles. She has an extensive experience in playing in Symphony and Chamber Orchestras.

Teaching and Pedagogy

Gayane finds teaching as much exiting as performing even though these are two very different experiences. She enjoys the presence of her students every week. Teaching them new skills gives her motivation to find new ways to approach the difficulties students normally face. The success of the student is her biggest achievement.

Philosophy and Approach

Music is a beautiful way to express ourselves. It takes years of dedicated study to master a musical instrument. My approach of teaching the violin is simple and yet very constructive at the same time. The teacher must show a very loving and patient approach while teaching. This improves the student’s confidence and ability to grasp as much as possible during the lesson.

Student Testimonials

  • Gayane is a very patient and professional teacher. I've played violin with her for half a year and felt great progress, and been attracted to violin more and more. She has systematic methods and process towards teaching, and I wouldn't feel too difficult to understand, but also can acknowledge all the techniques and knowledge required to build as base, in order to make futher progress. She also explains the difficulties patiently and clearly, I've made progress and had fun from violin with her.

  • My name is Tara Zandi I am 12 years old , and I have played with Gayane for 5 years and I love playing with her. When I first started I was so nervous, but then she gave me self confidence and helped me step by step and now I'm not nervous, when I perform for people, I wouldn't be nervous because Gayane helped me to be brave and not be nervous. Notes, music and so much more and that's why I like her very much and I hope some day I can be a good violin player, just like Gayane.

  • I had been a student of Gayane’s for years and I have to say that she is incredibly and undeniably talented and one of my biggest role models. Not only is she one of the most kind and patient people I’ve ever known, but she is an amazing teacher. She really cares about her students and I have never seen her put in any less than 100% of her effort during any lesson. She has a large variety of methods and practices to do to improve technique and she will thoroughly explain the nature of a piece to help a student better understand how to play it. I completed my RCM programs with her and she really does do everything to support her students. I highly reccommend her if you’re looking for a violin teacher who really focuses on improving her students’ skills and musicality.
