Tiffany Weiss is an New York-based freelance violinist, teaching artist, and dancer originally from Arizona. She began violin and dance lessons at age four in the small town of 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 from Arizona 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 session musician, orchestra sub and other performance opportunities. Her career has taken her to many different formats, including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, live Kirtan sessions, local bands, corporate galas, and event entertainment wearing a dress made of roses. She truly loves performing in any scenario.
She still currently teaches private violin 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, cycling, reading, and traveling anywhere with clean air.
