Felix Amirian is an experienced world-smooth jazz guitarist and pianist located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Born to an Armenian family in a town along the coast of the Caspian Sea. When 14, a friend handed him a guitar. He had never held one before, but took it immediately. The instrument was quite weathered and had only two strings. It was with those two strings that he played an old Armenian melody.
Soon word got back to his parents that Felix had a special affinity for the instrument. Shortly thereafter, his father bought him his first guitar. This was the turning point that would carve the path to his career as a professional musician.
One and a half years later, his parents sent him to College in Cambridge, England, to further his studies in music, where he refined his skills with a foundation in classical guitar. In 1984, Felix was given the opportunity to go to Germany, where he delved into piano and guitar, learned music theory, and took on studies in jazz. He played in various bands in the Black Forest towns of Calw and Nagold in black forest, Germany, where he was able to freely develop his playing style. In 1988, he moved to California, a place known for its cultural diversity and its rich musical heritage.
