Davtyan gave his talented student many secrets of conducting skills, awakened in him the ability to perceive the most subtle artistic impressions and translate these impressions into artistic images and ideas. Davtyan paid special attention to the education of the conductor's will among his students and the accuracy of the conductor's gesture, which allows the conductor to betray his thoughts and ideas of the orchestra.
