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
