Are you curious about the piano method books other teachers use, and wonder how to choose the right ones for your students? Do you want your students to play with better technique and expression, but aren't sure how to help them?

Excellence in Piano Teaching might be right for you if:

  • You've always wanted to take a piano pedagogy course -- or, if you took one during college but you'd love to take another!
  • You have a drive for ongoing self-improvement as a piano teacher and would love to take your teaching to the next level.
  • You love the idea of spending time on weekly readings and participating in discussion prompts to interactive with and apply what you are learning.
  • You love talking with and connecting with other piano teachers. After all, the more we learn about others, the more we learn about ourselves!

This course might NOT be right for you if:

  • You are juggling such a busy schedule right now that it isn't currently feasible to invest a few hours per week into the coursework.
  • You feel the way you are currently teaching is good enough - you aren't interested in bringing your teaching or business to the next level right now. 

"Joy Morin's course is one I would highly recommend for any piano teacher. This course exceeded my expectations and in my opinion, was worth every penny."

Hi, I'm Joy. I believe that excellent piano pedagogy training should be accessible and readily available, especially in today's day and age. That is why I created the Piano Teacher Institute, creating opportunities for group coaching and peer interaction for studying material typically encountered in college-level piano pedagogy courses -- plus much more.

In an ideal world, piano teachers are thriving, active members of the profession and their community who produce progressing, capable students, and earn comfortable living while doing so. That is what my course, Excellence in Piano Teaching, is all about. 

During the course, I'll be at your disposal helping you work through the weekly course material. And you'll have fellow comrades cheering you on.

I hope to see you inside the course!
