Born in 1989, Armen Doneyan began his study of the guitar at the age of six with Alexandre Gérard. He continued his musical education with Daniel Lavialle, then with Ramon de Herrera at the Conservatoire National de Région de Paris where he won first prize in 2008. Entering the Conservatoire à rayonnement départemental d’Aulnay-sous-Bois the same year, he studied with Judicaël Perroy. Two years later, while he was still studying with Judicaël Perroy, he entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris to study also with Roland Dyens and Jean Marc Zvellenreuther, obtaining his master’s degree in 2015. He also benefited from Jeremy Jouve’s advice during summer and master classes. In 2009 his passion for chamber music led to the formation of the Duo Solea with the French cellist Michèle Pierre. Armen Doneyan is a laureate of the Banque Populaire Fondation, and plays Savarez strings.
