The Elvina Pearce Teacher Education Fund

The Frances Clark Center is thrilled to announce the generous and transformative gift received from renowned teacher Elvina Truman Pearce. This unprecedented legacy gift has been donated by Elvina to advance the mission of the Center through meaningful and high-quality teacher education. Through her generosity, Elvina continues to support the future development of the profession.

The Elvina Pearce Teacher Education Fund embodies the career and life work of internationally recognized master piano and pedagogy teacher Elvina Truman Pearce. Highly influential in all areas of the Frances Clark Center, Elvina was a pedagogy student of Frances Clark, and one of the founders of The New School for Music Study and the Frances Clark Center for Keyboard Pedagogy in Princeton, New Jersey. She is also one of the founders of the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy (NCKP) and the Editor-in-Chief of Keyboard Companion magazine from 2000-2006.

The Frances Clark Center is coordinating a fundraising campaign to support the Elvina Pearce Teacher Education Fund. All contributions will help build the Fund to establish a range of innovative teacher education programs. Please join us in celebrating Elvina and her extraordinary support of the piano teaching profession through the Frances Clark Center, its mission, and the extensive network of teachers globally.
