Portland Piano International invites you deeper into the piano experience with Up Close With the Masters. In these sessions, formerly known as Master Classes , our recitalists openly share the insight gained from lives devoted to piano study and performance with advanced piano students and an invited, rapt audience: you.

These intimate work sessions are integral to one of Portland Piano International's core values: music education. The sessions are FREE and offer an extraordinary opportunity to see and hear the master teach and the student absorb, struggle and break through to a new level of artistry.
You needn't be an expert, a pianist, a teacher or even a student to enjoy and profit from Up Close With the Masters . All you need is curiosity and a couple of hours to pursue it.
