The aim of this study is to reveal the emergence and development of brazilian professional piano playing and pedagogy, the appearance of the first Conservatory and piano faculty, as well as the first representatives of the national performing school. Much of this work is dedicated to the most important national composers and the characteristics of their piano compositions.
