Vagarsh Martirosyan was born in Armenia, where he graduated from the R. Melikyan Music College in Yerevan, Armenia. He continued his studies at the Maimonides State Jewish Classical Academy, returning to Armenia where he had additional studies with Armenian tenor Gregam Grigoryan. Beginning in 2006, he was engaged as a soloist-trainee in the Opera House at Yerevan. Moving in 2009 to Nuremberg, Germany, he continued his vocal studies at the Hochschule für Musik.
