A ‘Trainee Simply Music Teacher’ is the first level of being a Simply Music Piano Teacher. Trainees have begun their journey into the Simply Music Teacher Training Program however, they have yet to finalize their training and elevate to Licensed status.
A ‘Licensed Simply Music Teacher’ is the second level of teaching status. Licensed Simply Music Teachers have fulfilled the requirements for completing their Initial Teacher Training Program. Inquire with them to find out when and if they are ready to teach.
A ‘Certified Simply Music Teacher’ (our third Teaching Status level) has successfully completed the Simply Music Certification process as well as other requirements needed to become a Certified Teacher of this Program. This includes having taught Foundation Levels 1, 2 and 3 as well as all applicable Special Programs (Composition & Improvisation, Arrangements and Accompaniment 1). Certified Teachers present the Simply Music Programs exclusively to their beginning students, and they have shown that they follow our carefully-designed curriculum authentically.
An ‘Advanced Simply Music Teacher’ (our fourth level of teaching status) is only acquired after being a Certified Teacher for at least 4 years, teaching students through Foundation Level 9 and all associated Special Programs (Composition & Improvisation, Arrangements, Accompaniment Programs, Reading Programs, Blues & Improvisation and Jazz Clues). An Advanced Simply Music Teacher has demonstrated that they are an educator with a high degree of experience. Advanced Teachers present the Simply Music Programs exclusively to their beginning students, and they have shown that they follow our carefully-designed curriculum authentically.
‘Master Simply Music Teacher’ is an honorary position (our highest Status Level that can be achieved). It is offered by Simply Music’s Founder, Neil Moore, to members of the organization who have demonstrated, over an extended period of time, that they are teachers who possess exemplary skills and qualities. They are mentors and a model to their fellow Simply Music Teachers and are considered leaders in our teaching community.
