About

whitepianoSmallAmateurPianists is a 501(c)(3) non-profit orga­ni­zation 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 over 1,000 piano enthu­siasts and is the largest piano meetup group in the world. Perfor­mances are held at various venues—from recital halls and libraries, to churches and private homes. The group also provides educa­tional oppor­tu­nities, such as masterclasses and lectures on perfor­mance practice, the history of clas­sical music and much more. One of our highlights for 2016 is the San Diego International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs from July 15–17. Clas­sical music should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone, and AmateurPi­anists serves to facil­itate this mission by connecting pianists with audiences.
