Piano Pedagogy

Program Purpose

Since the piano is the main instrument used for sacred music, it is essential that many young people and adults know how to play it well enough to serve in their local churches. The Piano Pedagogy associate program prepares the student teacher to teach piano while also providing training in Bible and general ministry. Enrollment in the program is contingent on a successful piano audition. Piano Pedagogy majors must pass music major platform evaluations in piano.
