Tiffany Weiss is a New York-based freelance violinist, teaching artist, and dancer 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. Some 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 college.
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 freelance violinist in Manhattan. Her career has taken her to many different formats, including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, live Kirtan sessions, local bands, corporate galas, and in event entertainment wearing a dress made of roses. She truly loves performing in any form.
During the day, she helps run her family’s business and currently is a Teaching Artist, Hebrew school, and dance/yoga teacher 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 dancing, cycling, reading, watching Real Housewives of New Jersey, and traveling anywhere with fresh air.
