The voice of the piano teachers everywhere!
EPTA - European Piano Teachers Association – is a most prestigious organisation with 38 national associations in Europe.
Every organisation organises its own congresses, workshops, seminars, recitals, master-classes and is committed to present young artists, competitions and festivals.

An annual conference of all EPTA European Associations is held every year in a different country under the Presidency of the host association.

EPTA-s aims are:
• To work towards raising the standards of piano teaching and performances.

• To organise workshops and conferences where teachers can meet, exchange ideas and have discussions in open forums.

EPTA-Norway was founded 1988 by Professor Einar Steen-Nøkleberg who also has been the president ever since.

EPTA-N organises annual conferences for pianists, teachers and students. These conferences aim to give the participants pedagogical ideas, repertoire, master-classes and recitals. Most of the conferences also include presentations of contemporary composers.
