The new MTNA Certification process is now available for piano, voice, violin and flute teachers. Certification candidates are now required to complete these projects:
explanation of teaching philosophy
analysis of teaching pieces
video of teaching
description of teaching environment
discussion of business ethics and studio policies
Teacher Profile Project workbooks for each instrument are available on the MTNA Certification website. The workbooks are accompanied by a document titled, "What Will the Evaluators Be Looking For?" which guides candidates as they complete the profile projects. Other materials, including articles about video recording lessons, can also be found on the Certification website. For more information about the new process, visit www.mtnacertification.org or email mtnacertification(at)mtna(dot)org.
