2016 PPG Festival

Welcome to the seventh annual PPG festival. The Piano Pedagogy Group is a group for teachers studying piano pedagogy or working towards an exam goal.

The festival is organized for PPG teachers and their students. All students of any age or level are encouraged to enter any style or genre of piece. The festival also offers a teachers class for PPG teachers who are working on repertoire.

– Learn from a qualified adjudicator to gain extra insight into repertoire
