At the Zakhar Bron School of Music we teach violin, viola, cello, piano and harp to 4-18 year old students. All instrument lessons are taught individually – one-to-one. We also teach music theory and music history – as optional disciplines. These two subjects are taught in groups of 3-5 students.
Depending on the number and duration of lessons, the following tuition programs are available: basic (up to 60 minutes a week), advanced (starting with 2×45-minute lessons a week) and professional (starting with 3×60-minute lessons a week, can be assigned by the school administration only).
The tuition fees are fixed for a semester and depend on the number and duration of lessons taken per week. The tuition fees for the 2023/2024 academic school year are (CHF per month/semester):
|1 lesson||2 lessons||3 lessons|
|30 min||220 / 1’320||400 / 2’400||570 / 3’420|
|45 min||320 / 1’920||550 / 3’300||830 / 4’980|
|60 min||400 / 2’400||680 / 4’080||1’020 / 6’120|
The instrument tuition fees can be paid either per semester or monthly. In the latter case, the extra School administration fee of 5 CHF shall be applied for each payment.
Music theory & music history
The optional (yet highly recommended for advanced and professional program students) music theory and music history lessons take place once a week as 45-minute group lessons. The tuition fee for either the music theory or music history is 640 CHF/semester.
Extra lessons & piano accompaniment
Extra lessons can be provided during a semester, if requested by a student to better prepare for a competition or a concert for example. These are charged at a fixed hourly rate of 120 CHF/h. Piano accompaniment shall be provided by the School to the string students when preparing for the concerts, competitions etc at a fixed rate of 80 CHF/h.
Discounts for tuition
The discounts for tuition and their recipients shall be determined by the School Board & Administration meeting for each semester.
We teach Monday-Saturday. Our school calendar – including holidays and vacations – is based on the school calendar of the canton of Zurich. Download the ZBSM calendar for 2023/2024 academic year
