The aim of the Friends is to support the Team of Pianists by directly assisting the Team, helping to promote its activities and building membership of the Friends. Members receive discounts for some Team events such as masterclasses and lectures and will be invited to join in social and educational activities organised specifically for the Friends. The Friends also coordinate 'Friends Play for Friends', a group of members who are pianists who get together informally in members' homes to perform for each other. There are regular newsletters (download a sample from June 2015 or November 2015) and opportunities to meet the Team and other performers.
New members receive a free CD featuring recitals from the biennial Australian National Piano Award in Shepparton.
