Where:  The venue is expected to be Dr. Petroff’s home in Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas.

Who may enter: Any young pianist in grades 1 thru 12 at the time of the competition.

Competition will require that two pieces are played in a recital-like setting. One of the pieces MUST be from the compositions of Dr. Peter A. Petroff. The other piece will be a contrasting piece in terms of style and composer, but should be of equal technical difficulty.

The Petroff Piano Competition entry form can be downloaded/displayed and printed by clicking on this link.

The entry form must be MAILED and post-marked no later than February 18, 2024. Please print the form and mail to the address shown on the form.

Don’t forget your entry fee. BUT PLEASE: do NOT send cash. Checks or money orders are fine, but we can’t be responsible for lost mail that contains cash.

If you have difficulty with the link for the entry form, it is possibly due to the fact that your computer does not accept Adobe “portable document format” (PDF) files.

The music is available from the publishers. Samples are included here on a separate page!

The student or the student’s teacher or parents are free to ask questions directly to Dr. Petroff by e-mail. Sorry…no phone calls accepted.  Please use the “CONTACT US” link to ask questions by email.

And MOST of Dr. Petroff’s compositions are available on CD, performed by professional and very accomplished performers, such as Ms. Nina Drath and Ms. Pauline Leung-Glickman. You can find the CDs on-line via the CD Baby Record Store, Amazon music, or Spotify.

A celebration recital for the winners of the competition is usually organized about 2-3 weeks after the competition. Dr. Petroff will coordinate individually with the winners and their parents.
