Train to be a Qualified Violin Teacher with Pro-Am Strings

Violin Teacher Training

We are currently in the process of creating a new online violin teaching course for violin tutors, with a view to our first cohort of students starting in September 2017.

Please find the outline (subject to change) of the course below:

Who is this course for?

This course will be suitable for advanced players of the violin and viola. Most students will be music degree graduates, but those not in possession of a degree from an established musical institution may be allowed on the course after they have demonstrated a sufficient level of playing on their instrument in other ways.

How long does this course take?

This is a part time course and it is assumed that most students will take this course alongside work commitments. As a part time course, the course will take about 10 months to complete. However, this course can be taken full-time, in which case it may be completed in about 3 months.

What will this course lead to?

This course will lead to the Pro-Am Strings Certificate of Teaching.

What does the course look like?

This course consists of:

– 4 teaching modules, delivered by video lectures:

  • Module 1: Psychology of Learning
  • Module 2: Psychology of Teaching
  • Module 3: Pedagogy of the violin/viola
  • Module 4: Repertoire knowledge
  • End of module written assessment after each module.

– Teaching practicals:

Students on the course are required to send in weekly videos of their teaching over a period of 3-6 months or until the student has demonstrated a consistently good standard of teaching. These videos will be assessed on a weekly basis and suggestions for improvement given. As there is a huge range in teaching ability between students, the exact duration of this aspect of the course may vary.

– End of course dissertation.

How many hours per week should the student set aside for this course?

Most students will spend about 5 hours per week on this course, in which case the course will take about 10 months to complete.

What will this course cost?

A price for this course has not been set yet, but it is envisaged that the price will be about £750.
