Moved recently to Piedmont. Looking for a piano teacher who will prepare students each year for the Certificate of Merit testing.

My children are 10 & 8 years old. 

Thank you for any leads in advance!

I don't know if she is stlll teaching, but if so, try Vicki Hurd, in the phone book, in Oakland, on the Piedmont Border.  Near Beach Elementary.  My son took lessons for about 5 years from age 5 - 10.  She's great, so well trained--great teacher of technique and musicality, but it was almost 10 years ago when we were with her, and she was not young then.

Pia Siegwart (Berkeley Academy of Music) does this. My son did several years of Certificate of Merit and played with Pia for several years. She is a great teacher.

I believe that Kate Campbell teaches within this certificate of merit system. She is very experienced, kind, and excellent. I'd recommend contacting her. When we took with her some years ago she was on the Emeryville/Oakland border.
