Piano Pedagogy Research

Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Programs
Degree: Post-diploma
Field of Study: Music, General
Description Interest in research into the theory and practice of piano pedagogy is in a growth period. This program will provide an in-depth study of the research done in piano pedagogy or related disciplines as it contributes to our understanding of the processes involved in learning to play the piano. This graduate diploma will enable piano teachers to incorporate scientific knowledge into their own practice of piano teaching and will contribute to developing highly qualified professionals with a strong interest in research in the field. The Graduate Diploma in Piano Pedagogy Research is offered both on a part-time basis and a full-time basis. Full-time students will normally complete the Diploma within two sessions (September to April). All students will be required to complete it within three years. On completion of the diploma, qualified students meeting admission requirements may apply to the MMus or the MA in Music and, on admission, complete the requirements for those programs with credit granted for relevant courses already completed in the diploma. The number of credits remaining would be assessed individually with relation to the student's chosen master's program.
