ince its inception in 1995, we have encouraged the participation of a
worldwide audience of teachers and students in generating the content of
PEP, so as to provide a wide group of opinions and approaches to piano
teaching and learning. PEP's long list of contributing authors attest to
that fact. However, not all of the most valuable contributions can be found
in the articles.
Piano Education Page
Forums provide a wealth of information from piano teachers, students and
pianists around the world, many of whom have not written otherwise for PEP.
However, they are so extensive in their content that many people may have
difficulty finding the "best" threads for reading.
summarizes in one place those threads within the Forums which have generated
the most posts or have been indicated as favorite threads by the users of
the Forums. I hope that this summary will prove valuable to those who would
like to learn more, especially on those subjects which we have not
previously written upon elsewhere on the site. I have used my own posts in
some of these threads as the basis for expanded full articles for PEP, so
reading the original threads gives you an opportunity to see what others
felt on the same topics.
Linked threads below will open in a new tab or window, so that you can keep
this page available as you examine the various threads. As the
titles of the threads are largely self-explanatory, I have not attempted to
provide a summary of the content of them. Most of the threads listed and linked below are available to Forums
non-members ("Guests"). A few may require you to join the Forums to view
Of course, we would be happy to have you add your own thoughts to
those threads as a Member of the Forums. Joining the Forums takes just a

product sales purposes. Within 24 hours after you join, you will will be approved
