Our core mission is to match piano students and teachers. A good match helps ensure the longevity of the teaching experience and the proper skill development of the student. Whether student or teacher, your success depends on finding the right counterpart, which can be difficult.
Traditionally, students and teachers alike have relied largely on word-of-mouth to find each other.
As a result, teacher selection appears limited to students, although there are many qualified and professional teachers available to them. At the same time, teachers seeking to establish and maintain their practices often struggle; while highly trained in their art, professional piano teachers are generally not well trained in marketing.
For the student, finding a good teacher—let alone a good match—can be luck-of-the-draw. For the teacher, making a living with their passion seems daunting.
The Piano Teachers Federation (PTF) eliminates the guesswork by providing teachers with an effective means of marketing their services. In turn, students can easily find teachers who match their criteria using search feature found on this website.

Our Plans and Goals
All great endeavors have a starting point. Ours is now!
The PTF is the brainchild of Sean Pacey who founded it in late 2009 and is provided as a free service sponsored by Pacey's Pianos. The PTF began its initial teacher membership drive in early 2010.
We have completed our initial membership drive and we have successfully planed and executed multiple marketing and community outreach programs. We are the online resource for piano teachers and their students, and we promote piano music and playing worldwide.
The Piano Teachers Federation relies upon leaders of the Music Community who volunteer, guide and support our programs by participating as a member of our Advisory Board. Members share their professional and personal expertise to ensure that our programs will continue to successfully provide top-quality services.
