Many private studio teachers are teaching because they are gifted, talented and experienced, and are passionate music educators. According to the Music Teachers’ National Association:
Certification is a process that validates an individual’s qualifications for a specific field of professional practice. It demonstrates to employers, clients, and peers that which the individual knows and is able to do. It signifies commitment to continued excellence in professional practice. In addition, it increases visibility, builds credibility, provides a goal for personal professional achievement and validates expertise for the individual and to those outside the field (Copyright Music Teachers National Association.

I can provide mentorship, lessons, and guidance through the process of those who desire to obtain MTNA Certification. The value of professional fellowship and resources enhances any serious teacher, and students benefit by being eligible to participate in the various educational and competitive programs. This is a wonderful program for teachers who may not have had the opportunity to pursue collegiate degrees, and who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the profession. Validating that experience and passion is indeed a worthy pursuit. Contact me through this site to inquire about this program. Lessons and/or advising can be scheduled to meet your needs.
