Piano Pedagogy Online provides an introduction to a wide variety of teaching approaches and techniques for the instrument. The course also helps current piano teachers with self-assessment techniques and assists them in preparing for achieving national certification in piano through MTNA. Students in the course are required to have at least one private piano student OR one group keyboard class to videotape some lessons.
To register for the course, please go to the graduate studies website at Fairmont State and apply as a non-degree seeking student: http://www.fairmontstate.edu/graduatestudies/default.asp.
A student in a graduate professional development course must submit a graduate application as a non-degree seeking graduate student on or by the first day of the course, and pay an application fee equal to 50% of the regular graduate application fee, or be previously admitted to a graduate program. A non-degree seeking graduate student is not required to complete the GRE, the Miller Analogy Test or the GMAT or submit letters of support. Tuition for the 3-hour graduate course is $99.00.
If you have questions about the course or would like to be e-mailed a syllabus, please contact Associate Professor of Music and member of the FSU graduate faculty, Dr. Mary Lynne Bennett, NCTM, at Mary.Bennett@fairmontstate.edu.
