Greenfield Piano Associates is a group of people with varying musical backgrounds who all share a common dedication to good piano playing.
The group was founded by pianist Elaine Greenfield as an educational organization and as a vehicle for bringing her mature artist-students before the public. Greenfield heads the group of students teachers, performers, and piano lovers. They join together to promote excellence in piano playing through public and private performances, master classes, study and critiquing sessions held in each other’s homes, and through outreach projects. Greenfield Piano Associates is strictly not for profit.

Whether one is performing in an area recital or master class, or participating in a weekend afternoon group piano seminar, the focus of GPA is always the same — to develop and share a deeper appreciation of the piano as a musical instrument and vehicle of expression.
Greenfield Piano Associates enthusiastically welcomes any student, teacher, performer, or piano lover who would like to encourage the group and its work by becoming a supporting member. Members receive newsletters, announcements, and calendars of events, and are welcome at any meetings, workshops, or concerts. We invite you to join or renew your membership.
By being a supporting member you help with the expenses of presenting public performances (tunings, hall rental, programs, publicity) and any additional mailings of newsletters, concert notices, calendars, special announcements, etc. Also, we regularly use our membership funds for specific musical projects. For example, GPA led a fund raising campaign for a new concert piano for St. Paul’s Cathedral. Also, in years past GPA has sponsored workshops for Vermont piano teachers, a special concert for young pianists, a workshop in Alexander Technique, donated a collection of music to Adamant Music School, an artists bench to St. Paul’s Cathedral, and awarded scholarships for piano study.
We would welcome you as a member. Please see
