I'm Sven Haefliger

It all started when I was a child, I really wanted to learn the guitar. I was then allowed to attend weekly lessons with enthusiasm. And so it came that I often played the guitar late in the evening, until my parents suggested that it would be nice if I went to bed now.

At the age of 20, I picked up the electric guitar and began studying at Berklee College of music. It was here that I began to play the piano - only at the age of 20, mind you. It fascinated me to quickly achieve audible results without great technical skill. In the course of time, the piano developed into my main instrument. I began to work as a piano teacher part-time. Besides making music, I became interested in learning methodology, philosophy, communication and organization - which is certainly unusual for a musician.

Step by step these different areas came together - that's how this interactive piano learning offer came into being in 2011. Here I put all my knowledge in a compact and understandable form for my piano students. The Zapiano®Method is equally revolutionary and immediately understandable for everyone. This way I make sure that creativity & structure are in balance and that piano playing is learned holistically.

"I didn't think I would have so much pleasure [...] learning according to your method. [...] I am 75 years old and as a psychologist [...] naturally attentive to your "teaching style". My progress says: that's exactly how it should be. [...]"
