Certificate in Music Teaching
Beginning in September 2017, the VCM is offering a new Certificate in Music Teaching (CMT) program. The CMT is a two-term, 11 hour/week certificate program offered through the Victoria Conservatory of Music and accredited through the BC Ministry of Education Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB).
The program is designed for those who will work with students through individual and group music instruction in a private studio setting, whether independent or in conjunction with an established music institution. The program builds upon understanding and skills gained through a previously-achieved postsecondary credential of music or music teaching, or through recognized professional experience teaching music.
The Certificate in Music Teaching is ideal for the emerging professional music teacher or for the established professional teacher who desires a strong skills-upgrading training program, rooted in both traditional and contemporary modes of teaching music and musical creativity, to support their continuing career in the music teaching studio. Upon achievement of the Certificate in Music Teaching, graduates are able to work in an independent or private music teaching studio.
