Tiffany Weiss is a New York based freelance violinist, teaching artist, and trained dancer originally from Arizona. She began violin and dance lessons at age four. She competed in local and regional competitions growing up, and won her first competition at age 11. One of her most favorite memories of growing up performing was her first solo performance with the Prescott POPS Symphony Orchestra playing Mozart’s Violin Concerto, No.4 at age 17, and Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole with the Four Seasons Symphony Orchestra during undergrad.
Ms. Weiss graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with her Bachelor of Music/Minor in Dance and Master of Music degrees studying under the tutelage of Professor Danwen Jiang. During the summers while attending ASU, she was Concertmaster of the Prescott POPS Symphony Orchestra, and traveled to Europe to participate in classical music festivals.
After teaching in the classroom full-time for four years, Tiffany pursues a freelance violin and dance career. Her talents have taken her to many different stages, including national television on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, live Kirtan sessions, local bands, hip hop music videos, corporate galas, and how can she forget the performance wearing a dress – fully made of roses. She also is the co-founding member of 7th House Strings, and a violinist for the Lotus Chamber Music Collective.
During the day, she helps run her family’s 3rd generation owned business, and also is a Hebrew school and dance/yoga instructor. In her spare time, she enjoys dancing, bicycling around New York, reading, watching the Real Housewives franchise, and traveling anywhere and everywhere.
