Studying music has been one of the most satisfying challenges Hripsime Melikyan has ever faced. Pianist Hripsime Melikyan was born in Yerevan, Armenia. First time she attended music school when she was 7-year-old. During that time, she participated in many different concerts and competitions. From 1995 to 1999 Hripsime Melikyan studied in Musical College after Romanos Melikyan as a solo pianist. There is a movement in Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 where the ability of the pianist almost defines human coordination and the sound is not of this earth. Moments like this are why Hripsime Melikyan devoted her life to the study of music. After graduating Musical College, she continued her study at Yerevan State University after Komitas (1999-2004). Hripsime Melikyan took part of many different concerts. As soon as graduating from the university she started teaching piano at musical school.
In 2011 she moved to the United States and continued her carrier with St. Petros Church as an organist. At the same time, she teaches at a private school and besides she performs concerts with vocalists all over the Los Angeles County. Hripsime Melikyan found the piano to be an intense field of music but that was exactly what stimulated to challenge her own limits, both academically and personally. She feels that music has some much to offer, you just have to go there and get it.
