Your source for Professional Development
Never stop learning...

Maybe you’ve just started teaching. Or maybe you’ve been teaching for years.

Either way, you’re probably wearing a million hats every day. Teacher, therapist, coach, accompanist, entrepreneur, technology consultant, bookkeeper...we could go on.

The point is, few of us have formal training in everything we’re called upon to do as private music teachers. We know. Many of us are teachers too. And that’s why we’ve created a full lineup of professional development resources especially for self-employed music teachers.

Why choose the RCM for your continuing professional development?

We know there are plenty of businesses offering to take your money in exchange for online professional development. This is partly because it’s so easy today for anyone to set up a website, fill it with flashy graphics, and call themselves an expert.

But here’s the thing. The RCM has been training teachers and performers since 1886. Sixty years after our inception we received a Royal Charter in recognition of our status as one of the world’s greatest music institutions.

Today we operate a research center dedicated to understanding the impact of music education on brain development and cognition. We have a partnership with the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. And our curriculum is considered the gold standard in Canada, the United States, and many other countries around the world.

Now we’re marrying this expertise with digital technology to create the world’s finest music pedagogy resources. So we’re not just a random group of folks hanging out a digital shingle. We are world experts in research, performance, curriculum development, pedagogy, and much more.

In short, you can trust that resources created by the RCM to help you expand your teaching skills and build your business will be the very best money can buy.

Low monthly subscription fits easily into your budget

We are confident these resources will help you grow as both a teacher and a business owner.

But we also understand that every dollar counts, especially when you’re self-employed. That’s why we’ve made these resources available on a monthly subscription, instead of asking you to pay the full annual cost up front. We’ve also made it easy for you to unsubscribe, any time.
