The accordion is being rediscovered by many people as a versatile, affordable, portable keyboard instrument of great character. It is also surprisingly easy to learn and easy to teach via Simply Music’s unique playing-based approach, which has produced many thousands of happily self-expressed piano and keyboard players, and has now been redesigned for accordion.
Our teachers needn’t possess advanced playing skills, prior teaching experience or a music degree. They simply must love to play the accordion, love being around people and have a desire to share this incredibly rewarding method with others.
Whether teaching from home or any suitable location, there’s a particular satisfaction that comes from teaching music, especially when it produces such extraordinary results.
If you already have skills on a keyboard instrument, accordion is a natural progression, and teachers commonly find it is a simple process to learn to both play and teach the instrument, adding to the choices they can offer potential students.
Teaching Simply Music Accordion means being part of a highly regarded and growing international music teaching community, supported by comprehensive training materials, coaching, marketing materials and other resources.
Our program is carefully structured and supported by a comprehensive training and certification process.
The Teacher Training Program is based around self-instructional materials and provides teachers with all they need to train themselves to successfully present the method. The flexibility of this distance-based system allows for the flexibility to do your training in the comfort of your home.
Teachers are granted access to the Teacher Training Program. The training materials provide a structured teaching pathway and present unique strategies for addressing the typical issues that students encounter along the way. In addition, students are granted access to Simply Music ‘Student Home Materials’. These materials support the student’s practice and provide an audiovisual summary of the material that was presented during their lessons.
The first experience is the Simply Music Initial Teacher Training Program, which combines the audiovisual Training Materials with a series of phone-based Coaching sessions, and follows up with Mentoring sessions after completion.
