Are you looking for a group of adults who play the piano not because they have to, but because they want to? The Long Beach Piano Meetup Group provides regular performance opportunities for intermediate and advanced adult amateur pianists and collaborative musicians in Long Beach, South Bay and nearby Los Angeles County and Orange County cities.

Our group meetings offer opportunities to "share enthusiasm and experience, be exposed to new ideas, develop performance skills, meet others with similar musical interests, and to grow in understanding and appreciation of the musical experience" (quoted from the website of the Adult Music Student Forum in Washington, DC, http://www.amsfperform.org/about.html, an organization we admire and hope to emulate).

Is this the right group for you?

  • Students returning to piano study after an absence and advanced students are both welcome. Remember that you'll be most comfortable in this group if you're already at least an intermediate player (e.g., Bach Little Preludes, Mozart, Clementi and Kuhlau Sonatinas, Schumann Album for Children, etc.)
  • This group is first and foremost an active performing group! Our events occur in private homes where space for auditors is limited. Occasional guests are of course welcome, but the membership emphasis is definitely on solo and collaborative music making. 
  • We regularly perform and listen to all kinds of music, but the majority of our members are classical music lovers.
  • A new and delightful development has been the formation of collaborative groups within our group--many of our meetups feature four-hand, string & piano and vocal performances as well as plenty of spontaneous music making.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
