Sykes Piano Teacher Training


The Sykes Piano Program is a rapidly growing approach to learning music and there are a shortage of Sykes trained teachers. Once students learn with Sykes Music, they do not want to change to another program. We have requests for Sykes teachers in the US, UK and all over Australia.


The beautiful thing about the Sykes Piano method, is that it is everything that you need to teacher your students, all in the one program. You do not need to create your program from picking bits and pieces from many differnet sournces. You longer need to spend thousands of  dollars buying teaching resources nor do you need to spend hours looking for material and preparing for lessons. With the Sykes Piano Program everything is provided for you. Teachers do not need to try to figure out ‘what’ to teach their students, ‘when’ to teach things to their students, or ‘how’ to teach these things. Teachers do not need to worry that they are neglecting an area of their student’s learning. There is no experimental stage of "learning on the job", because once teachers are trained, they teach with knowledge and skills, efficiently and powerfully. Students are no longer guinea pigs for teachers to use to learn how to teach. There is no trial and error.  

With the Sykes Piano Program, a complete developmental program is at the disposal of piano teachers.

It can take students from being complete novices to advanced musicians and not only that, it is done very efficiently and the entire experience is enjoyable for everyone – the student, the teacher and everyone else involved. 


Sykes Music is not a franchised or licensed system. Sykes Music teachers do not pay a percentage of their lessons to Sykes Music. Also Sykes Music teachers receive all student referrals free of charge.

"When I was starting to teach music I wasn't quite sure where to start. The Sykes Program gave a really solid base. The thing that attracted me the most as a teacher was how enjoyable it seemed compared to the traditional classical method I learned from. It allows you to incorporate all different styles and the students become really well rounded."
