What we're about

AmateurPianistsis a 501(c)(3) non-profit and the largest meetup group for pianists in the US. It was founded in 2011 by Glenn Kramer to provide performance opportunities for amateur pianists of all professions and backgrounds. Since its formation, membership has grown to include both pianists and non-pianists, people who love piano music or perhaps would be interested in attending their first ever piano performance. Our performances are FREE to the audience and are held at various venues—from recital halls and libraries, to churches and private homes. AmateurPianists also provides educational opportunities, such as masterclasses and lectures on performance practice, the history of classical music, and much more, including the San Diego International Piano Competition and Festival for Outstanding Amateurs (https://AmateurPianists.org/compfestinfo).

We believe that piano music should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone, and AmateurPianists serves to facilitate this vision by connecting pianists with audiences.

Membership is free, so join us!

Board of Directors:Chair - Lulu Hsu, Yang Shen, Glenn Kramer, Songqing Wen, Connie Almond, Keith Weibrecht, Sonya Schumann

Community Concert

Roosevelt Middle School

We are excited to cohost a special community concert with the Roosevelt Middle School. The theme for this concert is "Music for a Lifetime".

Get ready to be mesmerized by the magical melodies produced by the young talents from Roosevelt Middle School, as well as our amateur pianists who come from all walks of life. This concert is sure to leave you feeling energized and inspired.

Join us on Earth Day for a beautiful Saturday morning filled with piano music. And hey, why not make a day of it? After the concert, you can explore the world-renowned San Diego Zoo, which is just around the corner from Roosevelt Middle School. Or, take a leisurely stroll through the breathtaking Balboa Park in the afternoon.

Come out and enjoy the music, the sunshine, and the amazing community vibes. We can't wait to see you there!
