Academy of Fortepiano Performance

The Academy of Fortepiano Performance was co-founded by fortepianists Audrey Axinn, Maria Rose, and Yi-heng Yang in 2017 to provide an inspiring and practical immersion into the world of historical performance for students, professionals, amateurs, and audiences. Hosted by the Catskill Mountain Foundation Piano Performance in the idyllic mountain setting of Hunter, New York,  the intimate performance hall, rich piano museum, and comfortable student lodging are all in close proximity to each other and just 2 1/2 hours north of New York City.

Guest faculty have included violinist Cynthia Roberts, fortepianists Malcolm Bilson, Pierre Goy, and Andrew Willis, fortepiano builder Richard Hester, scholar and harpsichordist, Raymond Erickson, and historical keyboard performer Masayuki Maki.

The Academy is open to students, professionals, and adult amateurs. Advanced high school students are welcome with a parent or chaperone. Auditors are welcome for all events.
