The Piano Teachers Advanced Certificate program is designed for pianists to advance their professional careers as private piano teachers. The curriculum is structured to provide advanced instruction in piano teaching materials and techniques as well as music theory and history. In addition, students are given numerous opportunities to observe and teach children enrolled in group piano classes on campus. (Two supervised teaching sessions of children are required.)
The program is aligned with intermediate and advanced requirements provided in Michigan’s Student Achievement Testing and the Royal Conservatory programs.
Successful completion of the Piano Teachers Certificate is required for admission to the Advanced Certificate program.
All courses are not offered each semester. Students should work with the head of the Piano Program to set up a schedule that will work for them.
Students who satisfactorily complete the program requirements, and upon recommendation of the music faculty, qualify for a certificate of program completion.
Applied Music has an added fee.
