Do these courses replace in-person lessons with a pedagogy teacher?
Our Piano Teacher Courses are suitable for self-study AND they complement private lessons with pedagogy teachers.
What does each course contain?
Deep insight into physical approaches, musicianship, repertoire, and artistry for three levels of students: Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced. You’ll learn from videos that feature a variety of leading pedagogues and articles by subject matter experts, and demonstrate an understanding of key concepts through weekly assignments and participation in a discussion forum with professional colleagues. For a detailed description of each course, please visit rcmusic.com/PianoTeacherCourses.
How much time do I need to commit each week?
The amount of time you spend depends in part on your experience as a teacher, your comfort with online learning, and the number of hours you choose to invest in completing coursework. Participants have shared with us that they spend, on average, four or more hours each week.
Do you offer teacher specialist courses for other instruments or theory?
At this time we only offer Piano Teacher Courses. As our Digital Learning programming develops we may add more options. If you’d like to send us your thoughts in this regard, please email TeacherServices@rcmusic.ca.
