About the In The Style series:
The In The Style series focus strictly on the playing style of the artist. These are not general "how to" lessons. The goal of these lessons is to give insight on a wide range of topics relevant to the musical style of the artist. Advanced students will be able to immediately absorb and work on many of the concepts covered in the lessons. Beginner and intermediate level students will benefit greatly from the transcriptions of the numerous video performances with close ups when relevant. Music is like a language, and it is best learnt by surrounding yourself with better musicians. The goal of the "In The Style Series" is to give you this access, as much as possible, in the comfort of your own home!
About Armen Movsesyan:
Armen-Gurgen Movsesyan was born in Sochi, Russia after his mother and father emigrated from Georgia during a war between Abkhazia. Raised in a musical Armenian family,
Movsesyan was exposed at an early age to traditional folk music.
Movsesyan decided to pick up the guitar later in his teens after over 10 years of classical piano education. Watching his father sing older popular standards
from around the globe while playing the guitar inspired Movsesyan to start writing songs at 15.
Later at the University of Southern California, Movsesyan got into jazz and hasn’t looked back. The music that Movsesyan writes now is a combination of jazz, metal and other fusion styles. He hopes to continue playing the music that he loves and perhaps even making a little money on the side.
