TESTIMONIALS 2017

‘I would highly recommend this course. Over the 12 week course we covered so much. It was a great to up-skill and would be a great course to do if considering the DipRIAM. As an instrumental teacher it can feel quite isolating, it is nice to have this community of teachers (and now friends!) to correspond with.’

‘This course was an exciting introduction to the world of the twenty-first century instrumental teacher, and I would highly recommend it to teachers who would like to improve their knowledge of instrumental pedagogy and music teaching.’

TESTIMONIALS 2018

‘This course has given me the guidance and support I needed to begin my career as a piano teacher. I now feel more confident teaching and find that my lessons have more structure, working towards both the short-term and long-term goals of the student. As well as this I am now part of a new network of teachers who I plan to stay in contact with.’

‘If you feel somewhat inadequate as an instrumental teacher, this is for you. I thought I'd be a small fish in big pond here but I had just as much to contribute as anyone else. I think we learned as much from each other's experiences, as we did from the course material itself, and everyone had something to add.’
