Beethoven and Beyond 2021: Piano Competition Guidelines

The Piano Teachers’ Guild of the Philippines Foundation, Inc. is hosting this Piano Competition aimed for pianists under 30 years of age in FIVE (5) categories to commemorate the 250th Birth Anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven, a central image in all of Western Music.

Initially, this was scheduled for September 2020. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic that brought the world to a standstill in mid-March 2020, PTGPFI delayed its implementation. Now, it will be done virtually this April-May 2021.
