The European Piano Teachers Association (EPTA) is an international association of piano music educators. Founded by Carola Grindea in 1978 in London it has today grown along with the expansion of the European borders. The association's numerous activities such as conferences, competitions, master classes, seminars, and international congresses on pedagogical themes are today presented in all of the member countries.
Following the example of the main association, the Slovene branch of the EPTA, the Slovene Piano Teachers Association - EPTA organises several different workshops, events, and conferences. One of the best known cycles of concerts is Pianissimo, aimed at young pianists who have already graduated and to winners of the national competition Commission for Music and Ballet Competitions (TEMSIG). The association also organises the children's workshop "Kaj dela vaja?" which encourages children to spend more time with their instruments. Each year the organisation holds "Piano days" in different cities in Slovenia, with different topics and concerts at the forefront.
In 2010 the 32nd International EPTA Conference was held in Ljubljana.
