EPTA Europe is the umbrella organisation for all the European EPTA organisations.
Founded by Carola Grindea in 1978 in London it has today grown along with the expansion of the European borders.
EPTA - European Piano Teachers’ Association - unites Pianists and Piano teachers all over the world through its many EPTA Associations which all have regular activities . Every association organizes its own congresses, workshops, seminars, recitals, masterclasses and is committed to present Young Artists Platforms, Competitions and European Young Artists Festivals.
An Annual Conference of all EPTA Associations is held every year in a different country under the presidency of the host Association.
There is an EPTA in almost every European country and there are several outside Europe - these are EPTA Associates which include the USA and South America, Canada, India, China, Hong Kong , Israel, and Australasia.
Every Association sends out information to the central EPTA News which gives current, detailed information of piano-related activities throughout the world. This can always be found on the website and in the Piano Journal- the first ever Journal to be based solely on the piano -which is published three times a year by EPTA. Its first issue was published in 1980.
