"The Academy has been a dream born out of years of research in the study of teaching and playing the piano." ~Susane Davis
The Eugene Piano Academy opened its doors to twenty-four young children and their parents in the fall of 2011. From its beginning, the Academy has seamlessly combined traditional teaching methodology with the social and advanced learning support that comes from group classes. These peer groups make all the difference in creating an energetic, empathetic, and enthusiastic learning environment.
The Academy also serves as a vital part of the arts community, having hosted concerts for the Eugene Symphony, Oregon Mozart Players, and the University of Oregon. It has supported some of our community's invaluable non-profit organizations such as Well-Mama, MECCA, OSLP, and the HIV-Alliance, and has been a regular supporter of the visual arts with its involvement in the Lane Arts Council's First Friday Artwalks.
Beginning in 2016, the Academy partnered with Classic Pianos of Portland to further serve our community as, not only a place of learning but also as a trusted piano retailer.
As of 2020 we serve 200+ private lesson and group class students with a staff that includes 11 highly qualified and deeply caring instructors.
