PTC Online Modules


PTC Online is a brand-new initiative bringing you easy-to-follow video tutorials and exclusive downloadable content from expert tutors Lucinda Mackworth-Young, Graham Fitch, Sally Cathcart and Ilga Pitkevica.

This series of in-depth online learning modules has been developed in partnership with the Practising the Piano Online Academy and is based on content from The Piano Teachers’ Course UK.

The tutorials bring you world-class guidance and handy teaching tips to view, download and use at your convenience!  There are 6 modules available, covering teaching beginners, practising, piano technique, improvisation and playing by ear, and psychology for teaching and learning.

If you have wondered how to instil a genuine and long-lasting love of music in your beginner pupils, or you’ve been baffled about how to teach good technique even at advanced level, help is now available all in one place! The videos with accompanying downloads allow you to progress through each module at your own pace, return to the materials as often as you like, and start using the information straight away in your teaching.

Certificate of Completion

On completion of a module, you are able to apply for a Certificate of Completion from PTC Online, which counts towards your professional development and can be included in your Professional Portfolio.

To apply, download and fill out the application form below reflecting on the content of the module and its impact on your teaching, and email this, along with your proof of purchase of the online module you are applying for (an email confirmation or receipt from the Online Academy) to the Administrator, Rhiana Henderson: info@pianoteacherscourse.co.uk.

The cost of applying is £9.99 per module, and your application will be reviewed once payment has been received (details on the form).
