Introduction. Practice shows that the conceptions of the development of contemporary piano playing pedagogy are bristling with discrepancies: on the one hand, high achievements, results in festivals, competitions, on the other - an obvious decrease of interest in piano playing. A decline in the popularity of professional education institutions testifies not only to a general social apathy of the society, but reveals a range of problems in professional music education.The Aim of the Study. To explore the opinions of Latvian piano teachers about the changes in the piano playing study process.Methods and Materials. Analysis of scientific literature on the research problem, opinion survey of piano teachers in children's music schools; cluster analysis.Results. Research questions were investigated: What pedagogical paradigms do Latvian piano teachers use as the basis? Do Latvian piano teachers create the environment for the development of a free, creative and independent pupil's personality?Main Conclusions. The process of teaching piano playing, being part of the system of education, fully mirrors the on-going changes in the whole society under the situation of crisis. The influence of a social factor (the decline of the general intellectual level of the society, cultural crisis, re-assessment of values) on the level of popularity of the process of teaching piano playing is obvious.
