Master Classes


Pianists of all ages are encouraged to participate in Portland International Piano Festival Master Classes. There are classes for intermediate through professional levels. Our world-class Festival Master Class artists are both inspirational for piano students and piano music lovers alike. Not sure if you would enjoy a master class? A master class is a piano lesson with a "master" teacher and usually 1 to 3 students. The public is invited to "eavesdrop". Come see for yourself!
