ECMMA Certification


The Come Children Sing Institute Online Teacher Education Center offers an approved program for ECMMA certification. Options include online courses and workshops for CEUs for all levels of ECMMA certification, plus a full 30-hour online program for Level 1 Certification.


Earn 30 hours for ECMMA Level 1 Certification online. Engage in the exciting process of music learning with your own children. Nurture your children's artistry through Art Songs, Gem Songs, and delightful activities that propel music learning. This program can be started at any time and can be completed within two semesters or less. All coursework can be done from your own computer and in your own classroom, with flexibility for your own schedule. Tuition is $300.

Application for acceptance into the 30-hour online program includes a teacher profile and a telephone or Skype interview to confirm that this 30-hour program is a good match for your professional goals. A second telephone or Skype conversation is required after the initial 10-week course to address general progress, interest, and suitability for continuing in the 30-hour program. If you or the instructor decides at that time that you should not continue in the 30-hour program, you can still earn 10 professional development hours for successfully completing the 10-week course, with the option of 1 CEU through Indiana University/Purdue University, Indianapolis.
