Teacher Certification Course

The Piano Marvel Teacher Certification Course is self-paced, so it works with your unique schedule. As you read the instructions and watch the videos in each lesson, complete as much as you can. When you have questions or difficulty completing an assignment, contact your instructor for personalized help. Upon completion of the full course, you will become certified and be put on our Find a Teacher web page.

It is best if you already have at least one student before beginning this course. If you do not have a student, please recruit a friend or family member to act as your student for the duration of the course. You and your student will each need a Premium Piano Marvel account and the corresponding equipment, including a MIDI-enabled piano, a compatible device, such as a computer or iPad, and a MIDI cable to connect your piano to your device.

Thank you for your interest in becoming certified. We’re here to help you in any way we can, and we’re so excited to have you as a part of the Piano Marvel family! If you have additional questions, send an email to michelle@pianomarvel.com for help.
