Tiffany Weiss is an New York-based freelance violinist, dancer and teacher in New York originally from Arizona. She began violin and dance lessons at age four in Prescott, Arizona. She competed in local and regional competitions growing up, and won her first competition at age 11. One of her most favorite performance memories was with the Prescott POPS Symphony Orchestra playing Mozart Violin Concerto, No.4. at age 17.
Ms. Weiss graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with both 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 music festivals.
After teaching in the classroom for four years, Tiffany made the decision to pursue violin full-time and now works as a session musician, orchestral substitute and other performance opportunities. Her career has taken her to many different formats, including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Kirtan sessions, with local bands, and event entertainment wearing a dress made of roses. She truly loves performing in any scenario!
She still currently teaches private violin and guitar lessons aside from working as a Teaching Artist for various organizations in Manhattan. She performs in the NY/Tri-state area and goes on tour with productions 1-2 times per year.
In her free time, she enjoys Latin/ballroom/swing dancing, reading, and traveling.
