Arsen Petrosyan is a young master of the Armenian duduk, an ancient double reed woodwind instrument made of apricot wood. He is a graduate of the Komitas State Conservatory of Yerevan, where he studied under renowned master Gevorg Dabaghyan. Considered a musical prodigy, Arsen initially began his studies with mentor Krikor Khachtryan, starting out on the shvi (an Armenian wind instrument) at the age of six.
Despite his relatively young age (born in 1994), Petrosyan has already performed throughout the world. He is currently a soloist with the Armenian Traditional Music Ensemble (Yerevan) and has his own group, the Arsen Petrosyan Trio.
