Portland Piano International is committed to providing educational opportunities with our visiting artists. Our summer

festival includes many master classes, lectures, and other educational activities. In addition we offer master classes throughout the year with our recital series artists.

Not sure if you would enjoy a master class? A master class is basically a piano lesson with a “master” teacher and usually 1-3 students — and the public is invited to “eavesdrop!” You needn’t be a teacher or a student to enjoy a master class. Come see for yourself!

Celebrate Schumann's 200th birthday with his love inspired Fantasy Pieces Opus 12 and the stunning, virtuoso Symphonic    Etudes Opus 13 - or "Variations on a melody of a false Father-in-Law!" If ever a composer's music was inspired by his love life, this is the composer, and these are the compositions!

“The virtuosity and poetry of a world-class pianist combined with entertaining commentary create a concert experience that is magical” The New York Times.
