About John

John, formerly the soloist and principal cellist of the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic and, cello Professor at The Levine School of Music and Columbia Union College in Maryland. He is also a Full member of The International Academy of Sciences of Nature and Society, Department of Art.

Armenian born, he studied at the Yerevan Conservatory where he earned his Ph.D and then served for almost thirty years as Professor. He has studied cello with such great masters as Knushevitsky, Millman and Grigorian, and was awarded the title of “Honorary Artist of Armenia” and Laureate of the First Transcaucasian Music Competition. John has been a soloist with the Armenia Philharmonic, and the Armenian Opera House and The Armenian Symphony Orchestra of National Radio and TV with performances in Russia, Germany, Spain, Czechoslovakia, Austria, France, Syria and Lebanon. Since moving to the United States, his performances have included appearances at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center Concert Hall. His performance of Aram Khachaturian’s Concerto for Cello with Metropolitan Philharmonic inspired one reviewer in The Mount Vernon Gazette to write, “It was a love affair John was having with his instrument and graciously sharing. His performance was the most passionate of the evening, and alone, worth the price of admission.” The Washington Post has written, “cellist John G. has a big tone and big-picture approach…He can make his instrument roar and weep...He is a master of the grand gesture.”
Currently he teaches in his studio, in Burke. In the last year four of his students received full university scholarships to further their music education


PhD in cello performing and teaching. 50+ years of teaching and performing experience. I know well all the cello repertoire, due to years of teaching and playing in Symphony orchestras.

My students do improve their cello technique, achieve nuances of cello performance, play better overall.
