Playing the piano affects the whole person positively and enriches in many ways. The memory is getting trained and it increases the ability to concentrate. Music is food for the soul.
I have many years of experience as a piano teacher at the International School as well as private piano teacher. I give piano lessons for beginners and advanced students in German, English and Hebrew. For children I recommend to start with piano lesson already at age 5. On request, I prepare students for the international piano and theory examinations (ABRSM).
Through my classical background, I provide a profound piano technique. In addition to piano learning, basic principles such as theory, reading and writing notes, hearing, rhythm and harmonics are also essential elements of my piano lessons. Of course, it is also particularly important for me to be able to respond to your personal musical interests and goals individually. In this way, you will learn how to play well known pieces according to your personal preference whether it’s Classical music, jazz, pop, musical or blues.
The piano lessons take place in Zurich affoltern (Bachmannweg 31, 8046 Zürich).
- “I’ve been taking private lessons with Alex since January 2017 and I’m still thrilled. He is very competent, extremely patient and even managed to inspire me with some classical music pieces. The lessons are very varied, so that reading notes, finger exercises and theory are not neglected. I can highly recommend Alex”.

- “I’ve been studying with Mr. Aviv for a little over a year. He can explain the theoretical as well as the practical things of the music and the piano to me very well and I learn a lot from him. He is a teacher for beginners and advanced pianists. I myself am a piano beginner, but I have already studied the electric bass for 13 years and therefore have some previous knowledge of music. Also from the financial point of view you can afford the lessons. In contrast to many other teachers, it doesn’t cost so much and is still of good quality. I can recommend the lessons with Mr. Aviv to everyone.”

- “Alex is an amazing piano teacher. Very professional, patient and encouraging. He’s been teaching me for almost a year now. As a complete fresh starter, I can say that I’m happy with the level I’m getting so far. His students range from preschool young kids to seniors. Clearly, he knows how to measure the pace of the lesson to different people according to their learning abilities. I would recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a piano teacher.”

- “I am an adult student, who started to learn piano after I started working in industry.
I had free style piano learning for some favourate pieces with my first teacher.
Now I am taking lessons with Alex. Very Systematic music education. With good basis building and with concerns of the preferred music style of the student. I make firm and good progress with the excellent lessons and a lot of practise.”

- “Alex has taught my daughter for a couple of years now and taken her through 2 ABRSM exams. He asks a lot of his students but supports them well too. Her playing has improved a lot, especially her technique.”
