As a solo artist, Avi has released one album, a collection of original classical music, and a pop single. Avi also plays in their family band “Dogtown”, a New England-based contra dance group.

As an educator, Avi has lectured at Hampshire College on piano technique, music history, and performance analysis. They have written and taught courses at the New England Conservatory of Music, and have taught seminars in improvisation through multiple non-profits.
