Discover how to instill a lifelong love of music in your elementary level students. There are two Elementary Piano course options.
The guided online course follows a 10-week schedule, with an average of four to six hours of work required each week. There is also a self-guided course option at the elementary level. It can be completed in as little as 40 hours. If you are a new teacher, this course will give you a strong pedagogical foundation and new insights towards teaching that will help you and your students achieve success. If you are a seasoned professional, whether that be in piano or other disciplines, you will have the opportunity to learn from other experts in your field, as well as share your own approaches and techniques with your classmates.
