Peery Student Certification

Peery Certification holds students to the highest piano playing standards. Starting with the most important musical and muscular skills in the Peery Foundational Techniques program and continuing through Intermediate Players and Advanced Givers, a Peery Certified student, Peery Certification ensures that you will have a strong technique and be able to play any piece as well as you want.  Peery Certification teaches discipline, detail, hard-work and resilience.  And unlike other certification systems, Peery Certification requires that you master each skill before moving on to the next so that your foundation is strong and can support masterful playing at all levels.
