Irrespective of whether you run your own business or you are employed (or wish to be), it is important to stand for creative and verified solutions. Lessons using E.E. Gordon's theory are attractive both to parents and the children, and – based on research – feasibly contribute to developing music skills in kids.
So, working in accordance with this theory, you will fill your classroom with pupils (parents enjoy and recommend Gordon's music classes), you will gain the attention of nurseries/ kindergartens/ institutions specialising in extracurricular activities, and you become part of a greater good – supporting the development of children through music.
Children learn to audiate, in other words, to "think musically". They learn to understand and use music the same way they understand and use language. Learning in this informal, structured way allows them to quickly and naturally learn music and is a great foundation for future music learning e.g. learning to play a musical instrument.

Question 1: How quickly will I learn to conduct classes?
The right answer is – it depends!
I'm not able to predict your pace and how accurately you follow the online course 'Preparatory Audiation'. What I can say is that during the last couple of years I was able to help many teachers. In most cases, you can start practicing conducting classes right after completing all modules and watching examples.
Question 2: Do I need musical education?
You need basic music knowledge. In the course, I use terms which may be unclear to you if you didn't have to do with music theory before. Alternatively, if you are a good singer and you have an urge to learn and conduct your own gordonian classes – you can acquire the necessary knowledge first.
Question 3: Do I have to be able to sing?
Yes, you do. The ability to sing on key (the right intonation) is crutial to conduct gordonian classes.
Question 4: How long will I have access to the course?
Question 5: What support can I expect on Your part?
