Directory of the American Matthay Association

TOBIAS MATTHAY opened his School of Pianoforte Playing in London in 1905. The Matthay School became famous and attracted students from all over the world. In 1925 the American Matthay Association was founded to promote Matthay's teaching principles in this country. During Matthay's lifetime the members of the Association were chosen by Mr. Matthay himself. Since his death in 1945 members include not only those who actually worked with Matthay, but also outstanding pianists who have studied extensively with one or more members of the Association.

The categories of membership are as follows (Click on a category for current roster and biographies):
