Are you an adult amateur pianist who lives in in Long Beach, California or in a nearby Los Angeles or Orange County city? Are you looking for a friendly group that meets monthly to play for each other, socialize and offer support and encouragement? Beginning students, those returning to piano study after an absence and advanced students--all are welcome to join our new Meetup group! Our first meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 21st at 3 PM--see http://www.meetup.com/Long-Beach-Piano-Meetup-Group/ for details!

We had a small but wonderful first meeting-great musicmaking (everyone who attended also played, even those who didn't think they could or would), good fellowship and tasty food! Our next meeting is Sunday, March 28th at 3 PM--please see http://www.meetup.com/Long-Beach-Piano-Meetup-Group/ for all the details. We would love to see you there!

Hi there!

Just came across this today! I would love to join tomorrow but unfortunately we have made plans with family.

Please let me know when the next get together is and I would love to meet up with fellow piano folks.

Cheers!

Well there's a potential 2 more right there. It was a great meeting, great people, great location, great piano, (amazing tall ceiling!) and great hosts with awesome food.

Look forward to meeting more and broadening one's horizon (so to speak) thumb

Long Beach Piano Meetup Group is celebrating our 6 month anniversary!!! After an amazing event at Ode2Joy's home in June, we're assembling again at my home on July 25th for more piano playing (solo and collaborative) and good times together. Curious? Why not take a look at http://www.meetup.com/Long-Beach-Piano-Meetup-Group/ and see what you think?
If you're an adult amateur pianist with a yen for companionship and performing opportunities, we look forward to welcoming you!

Is there a Los Angeles Piano meetup group near the Hollywood area anytime soon?

Thanks

Hi Katt-

So far, we all meet in just one group--although we usually meet in Long Beach, we have welcomed members from all over LA and Orange Counties as well as a few from San Diego and San Bernardino counties. I'm not aware of an existing piano group in the Hollywood area, but perhaps someone who's reading this will chime in smile

ec.. I took a tour of your last year of gatherings and have to tell you "I'm envious"!! and of course, very happy for all who have joined a piano gathering group.

Appears you've found places outside of your homes to gather; I like that idea. And I also noticed you charge a fee to attendees? We've never done that at our past gatherings but for those who don't desire to bring along a food contribution could be a good alternative. And I totally like the dedicated once a month gatherings.

Thanks for sharing the very impressive link to your 'meet up' gatherings.

Hi Terrytunes--thanks so much for your kind words!! As we meet monthly, we try to shake things up a little to give our members opportunities to play in different environments on different instruments.
As far as the fee goes, we don't charge it if we do a potluck (which we occasionally do), but it works better for me to prepare a meal in advance for the group than to have a variety of potluck offerings raining down into my small kitchen at the last minute when I too am planning to perform. So far, so good!!

Wow--it seems like only yesterday I was posting the inaugural meeting of the Long Beach Piano Meetup Group to this forum, but this Sunday, February 26th, 2012, we're meeting to celebrate our 24th meeting and our SECOND birthday wow ! (http://www.meetup.com/Long-Beach-Piano-Meetup-Group/events/49287092/).
Highlights of the past two years include a Schumann/Chopin/ Barber Birthday recital, a Franz Liszt and His Contemporaries recital and our first ever master class with Jim McCormick. If you're an amateur adult pianist in the SoCal area, why not check us out??
