Diversified teaching plays an important role in the sustainable development of China’s basic piano course instruction for higher education teachers. A diversified curriculum system should be designed to promote the development of each student, and efforts should be made to cultivate high-quality talents who can adapt to the various needs of the society as well as to promote the reform and development of basic piano course instruction for higher education teachers. The aim of this study was to explore the teaching of basic piano course for higher education teachers based on the diversified teaching method. The teaching methods use for basic piano course were analyzed in this study, and two research methods were used to carry out the present study so as to effectively improve the operation of the diversified teaching method. Through a survey of the current situation of piano instruction in two higher education faculties, we can see that the teaching of basic piano course in higher education is still dominated by the traditional teaching method although the majority of students preferred the diversified teaching method.
