RPPF is like a Turkish Bazaar for pianists!


At RPPF we  offer daily lessons, afternoon special topic classes classes, LEGACY classes and nightly master classes with all our artist faculty. Students determine their own course of study and may have lessons and classes with as many teachers as possible, even every day! Unique to RPPF is the opportunity for each pianist to have private lessons from 16 artist professors on all aspects of learning and performing repertoire from traditional and innovative perspectives. Our class themes vary depending on students' needs and requests. We have a weekly Q & A forum where students can talk to artist faculty very informally.

wonderful LEGACY event









Decisions are tough!

So many choices --

so many lessons, classes, concerts!!!







RPPF is definitely intense.

Its a wonderful opportunity to learn from dedicated

acclaimed professors who all have something personal

and unique to say to each one of you.


        This is my dream gift to each one of you for your future and the future of piano.

Come and enjoy!











Thank you Professor Rebecca Penneys and festival team for hosting RPPF 2017 and making it such a wonderful and memorable piano festival! I really had an invaluable time learning, performing, and being challenged to expand my musical and creative capacity. I loved and appreciated the supportive atmosphere and the encouragement from faculty and peers. I'm excited to apply the tools I learned to my own practice. I will definitely miss everyone a lot.         -Kevin Rahardjo, Indonesia, Portland State University
