About

The Piracicaba International Piano Festival aims to bring together internationally renowned pianists and pedagogues for artistic and pedagogical exchange. The event is focused at piano students of all levels and age groups, in addition to teachers and pianists, and will feature recitals, masterclasses, workshops, lecture-recitals, lectures, studio showcases, technic cliniques, and round tables. After the success of the 2020 and 2021 online versions, where more than 70,000 people had access to our content through Zoom, Facebook and Youtube, this year we will be offering the event in a hybrid format (in person + online).

The eipianopira comprises several areas of the piano universe. In addition to the traditional areas of performance and pedagogy, the event also covers the following areas: piano technique, piano wellness, group piano, collaborative piano, opera & vocal coaching, historical performance traditions, improvisation, popular piano (Brazilian and jazz), contemporary piano, musical technology applied to the piano, entrepreneurship, digital marketing and career management.

 

The eipianopira will be a wonderful, unique opportunity to acquire and exchange knowledge, gain experience, as well as a valuable chance to network with pianists and teachers from all over the world and within Brazil.  These renowned educational institutions, pedagogues and artists are all representative of the highest standard that will enhance our Festival.

The eipianopira takes place annually and is a non-profit event, only possible through a partnership between pianists, teachers, students and the community.

The masterclasses have a duration of 3 hours daily and each participant will have around 30 minutes per masterclass with the faculty. Every days an average of  six pianists will be performing, consequently each participant would be able to perform at least everyother day of the festival

Recommendation for Online Participants

  • We recommend that all participants use fast internet to guarantee the best use of the event.  The ideal minimum speed is 10 mb/s for download and 5 mb/s for upload. To measure your internet, access the page www.speedtest.net or the SpeedTest App for mobile device or tablet.

  • Suggested equipment: We recommend preferably using a computer, laptop or tablet during the event, as they are equipment with larger screens. If the participant does not have any of these equipment and needs to use their cell phone, we recommend using an HDMI cable adapter to connect to a TV, to facilitate viewing the event.

  • If possible, we recommend the use of an external webcam, condenser microphone and speaker to improve the use of the participant in the event.
