"It was a wonderful experience to work in such a stimulating environment and a superb facility. I take my hat off to Rebecca for her leadership and vision. It is a great opportunity for the fortunate students chosen to participate with full tuition sholarship."

 I am so pleased that our second season was such a huge success! Our new home and strong community of inspiration, energy and dedication has made RPPF into a glorious, remarkable and unforgettable festival. RPPF is the sequel to my NY State summer program. Our 2014 videos (above) will give you a feel for what we do in this paradise. I invite you to apply to RPPF where you can explore your identity as a pianist, get your questions answered, and freely and truly find the space to develop your artistic dreams. Come to Florida, join us, immerse yourself in piano, and enjoy our spectacular new location. RPPF is tuition-free. It is my gift to all young aspiring pianists.

----Rebecca Penneys




Attending the Rebecca Penneys Piano festival was an amazing experience. The faculty was incredibly knowledgeable and skilled, and all the students were provided with as much instruction as we all needed. The faculty really wanted the students to succeed and the atmosphere among the students was very supportive. There were ample performance opportunities and classes that addressed important topics for all pianists to learn. I feel like I learned a lifetime of knowledge and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to be a participant in this high level tuition-free festival.”
