Robert Pace is the originator of the teaching approach we use at Early Piano Studio. Dr. Pace began teaching and developing the ideas for his unique approach shortly after graduation from Julliard, where he had studied piano with the famed Josef and Rosina Lhevinne.

He developed his first course books in the 1950s. In the 60s, Dr. Pace was asked by President John F. Kennedy to serve on a four member committee to make a study of music in the U.S. then in 1963 he became Director of the National Piano Foundation, where he served from 1963 to 1977. Dr. Pace resigned NPF to form the International Piano Teaching Foundation, (IPTF) in order to more specifically promote the learning theories he espoused. Although his particular method books are not used universally by piano teachers, whatever books they do use have most likely been influenced by his leadership in the field. In the 60's through the 90's many authors of the piano pedagogy materials have been students of Dr. Pace at Columbia

Pace Vitae. A native of Hutchinson. Kansas, Dr. Robert Pace resided in New York since his Juilliard days. He has held the position of head of the piano department at Columbia University, Teachers College since the early 1950's, escaping on weekends to a beautiful farm in upstate NY. His wife Helen is a vocalist and author of several materials in the Pace series, including the Moppets Rhythms and Rhymes book. The Paces now resides in Chatham, New York. His retirement in 1995 from Columbia has enabled him to devote even more time to new ideas, seminars throughout the world, and materials.
