The Certificate of Completion in Piano Pedagogy offers independent piano teachers the opportunity to improve the skills necessary for the effective teaching of piano. Currently there are no national requirements for the teaching of piano in an independent studio (unlike the requirements needed for teaching in the public schools).

The Certificate is specifically designed for those teachers who, for personal reasons, cannot or choose not to pursue a full major or minor in Piano Pedagogy. The pedagogy courses are aligned with the requirements for national certification through Music Teachers National Association, thus allowing VCSU certificate recipients to further refine their pedagogical skills by addressing the national standards set by MTNA.
