Tsoline Hajian discovered her love of music in early childhood. Growing up in an artistic family, she was introduced to music and the arts.

She started music lessons at the age of five at the Tchaikovsky Professional Music School in the Armenian Republic of the Soviet Union. Upon graduation she was accepted to the Komitas Conservatory in Armenia and continued her piano and music education with Professor Anna Ambakoumian. Tsoline began teaching when she was 17 as part of her studies at the Conservatory. Her first experience teaching a young piano student was pivotal and Tsoline discovered that she not only loved music but teaching as well.

Tsoline moved to America and continued her music/piano studies at the Mannes College of Music in New York City. There, she studied with renowned pianist and teacher Nina Svetlanova and obtained her Bachelors of Music degree.

Upon moving to Los Angeles she studied with Professor Bruce Sutherland, who gave invaluable assistance toward her musical growth.

She received her Masters of Music degree in piano performance at UCLA under the guidance of Professor Walter Ponce where she was a recipient of the Charlotte Brown Award, a Gluck Fellowship and the Mimi Alpert Feldman Scholarship.

Tsoline has always been grateful for the outstanding tools and pianistic fundamentals her teachers provided.

In Los Angeles, she established a successful career as a pianist and piano teacher. She has appeared at music festivals and recitals as a soloist and collaborative pianist. Tsoline has performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall in New York, Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, UCLA’s Schoenberg Hall, and at the benefit concerts for the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She volunteers performances at retirement and nursing homes.

Tsoline has also worked as a staff accompanist at West Los Angeles College and as a choir accompanist for Loyola Marymount University in California.
