Born in Bulgaria, of Armenian heritage, she began studying piano at the age of 5 and attended the State Music Academy of Bulgaria on a full scholarship where she graduated with honors. Ms. Syourapian has participated in piano master classes led by many influential pianists such as Oxana Yablonskaya (U.S), Detlef Kraus (Germany), Paul Van Ness (U.S.), Boris Bloh (Germany), Yuri Bukoff (France), Atanas Kurtev (Bulgaria), Victor Chuchkov (Bulgaria) and many more.
To date, Ms. Syourapian has performed at many prestigious events and venues both within the United States and internationally as a soloist and chamber musician.

During the last 15 years, Ms. Syourapian has shared her incredible education and talent with students of all ages and levels, group piano classes, as well as special needs children within the Tri-State and Boston areas. Her Russian Pianism influence on teaching allows her to bring her student's individual talents and abilities to a new level of excellence. Ms. Syourapian believes that piano lessons should be a part of every child's curriculum, and that the benefits are immeasurable! Pianists are able to read a universal language, learn to play many genres of music and express their individual style through the music they love. In addition, young pianists learn important skills such as self-discipline. They are taught the benefits of staying committed to a long term goal, even when it is difficult to do so.
Ms. Syourapian’s goal as a teacher is to help and train each of her students to excel in note reading, musicianship, dedication, and to celebrate their accomplishments, but above all to become independent musicians!
Ms. Syourapian is a member of the American College of Musicians Association, New York State Music Teachers Association and the Music Teacher's National Association which allows her to enter students in many varied performances, competitions, and master classes.
Ms. Syourapian's students have earned distinctive marks at a wide variety of piano competitions both statewide and nation wide. She offers professional training for those preparing for the Associated Board of Royal School of Music (ABRSM); New York State School Music Association Examination (NYSSMA); Achievement Program Exam (Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music); and National Guild of Piano Teachers exams at all levels, including theory and aural comprehension classes.
