The International Piano Teachers Association is headquartered in the
world-renowned music capital of Vienna, Austria. As early as 1978, Dr. Frank
Damrosch of the Graz University of Music and Performing Arts had planned the
prototype of the International Piano Teachers Association. In October 1981, The
International Association of Piano Teachers was formally established, and
immediately attracted a group of musicians and piano professors who are
influential in the local area, and quickly established their influence as a
platform for piano professional communication.
As one of the world's leading professional associations in the piano
field, the International Piano Teachers Association is the first institution in
Europe to establish a sound piano education system. It has the largest and most
authoritative piano examination and education system in Europe. Training and
other means promote the popularization of piano education. Cooperate with
UNESCO to promote the popularization of piano culture and education and form an
authoritative influence in the global music industry. Professionalism, public
welfare, and interaction have been widely concerned by the industry.
