Hi! I'm Aviva Enoch--teacher and sole proprietor of MusicAviva
I accept students of all ages, levels and abilities, who are drawn to music and have a desire to learn. It is
my aim as a teacher to kindle that initial spark, and to fan the flames into joyful, confident, musical
participation at all levels of instruction. My students have gone on to participate in school band and
chorus, as well as regional choirs and instrumental ensembles. That first spark, and the confident
musicianship that grows from these humble beginnings is truly amazing to witness.
I'm active as a pianist--accompanying choirs, dance classes, singers and instrumentalists--and playing for
weddings, receptions and other special occasions. My current activities include working as a piano
accompanist at the Community Church of Chapel Hill and playing in a duo with singer and
mutli-instrumentalist Jane Peppler. We perform Yiddish folk music and more. See our website at: Jane
Peppler and Aviva Enoch: world music.
I received my Bachelor of Music Degree in piano at the University of KS (1979) and my Master of Music
Degree in piano at Emporia State University (1981), where I worked as a graduate assistant, teaching
Suzuki piano. I recieved my early childhood certificate levels 1 & 2 from Durham Tech in 2007.
I'm a member of the Chapel Hill Music Teacher's Association, where I've served on the board and have
organized the "Compose-a-thon" composition "playshop for children". I've also served on the national
board of the Early Childhood Music and Movement Association, where I organized a national convention
Early childhood music and movement is a special joy and interest for me. I have taught classes for young
children at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro, the Durham Arts Council, University Presbyterian Preschool and
Kindergarten, Juhlin Kindergarten, and my own private Musikgarten studio. I have my early childhood
credentials I & II from Durham Tech. I've worked as a kindergarten assistant at Emerson Waldorf
School, and a lead 3-5 year old teacher at Our Playhouse Preschool--both in Chapel Hill.
During the 1980's and early 1990's, I had a blast working in public radio. I spent more than a decade as
a music host and arts reporter at WUNC-FM. I produced some arts reports that aired nationally on
Whether on the radio, leading a circle dance, teaching little fingers to play the keys, or playing piano for
worship-- my purpose is to share music joyfully and creatively with others.
