Many congratulations to my student Edward, who recently received a Distinction in his Grade 5 Acoustic Guitar exam!
For those who want to build well rounded technique on the acoustic guitar the RGT@LCM grades provide a very solid grounding, and they are increasingly challenging as you go up the grades. The graded exams are worth considering for adults as well as children/teenagers.
However, the majority of students learn purely for their own pleasure and reward, or to improve their skills for solo performance or collaboration. Elements of the RGT grade material are taught in lessons anyway in more flexible ways, including scales and aural skills. I help all students to build well rounded technique in the styles they want to play, working as much as possible on the songs and genres they are most into, including their own music, often working out unique arrangements.
