I'm wondering if anyone has taken any of these courses? I'm interested in pursuing MTNA certification for piano, and this is really the only online course I've been able to find that doesn't require you to have a Bachelors in Music. Wondering about experiences and if you would recommend it.

I'm not familiar with them (you may wish to broaden your search to present teachers having enrolled in similar online classes offered nationally), but found the page on them interesting

I was enrolled in the Online VCSU Music program 2 years ago. I quit in the middle of my second semester, the main reason being that I found the quality of education was quite low. PM me for details if you like.

I took some classes there as well. I dropped out of the program when the Certification requirements changed. I should probably go ahead and finish!
