Guys this is pretty awesome! Did you know that nowadays you can get music qualification by studying rock music? Do you know that you can earn it by playing AC/DC,BON JOVI or THIN LIZZY songs? I think its pretty insane! When I look back to times when I was learning music the only option was classical music that was out of reach of ordinary people. The times of rock music discrimination has ended. I highly recommend taking Rock School Grades. I use Rockschool books to prepare my students to take their guitar grades. Rockschool books are the best thing around and it’s pretty cool to have fun and earn some qualification at the same time! Here’s the info taken from their site:
‘Rockschool is Europe’s No. 1 rock music exam board, we offer rock musicians the opportunity to get the same qualifications that classical musicians can get. All our graded music exams have original set repertoire, encourage improvisation and have an element of free choice so you can play the music you love AND get a qualification. We are committed to making music examinations and qualifications practical, flexible and fun. But don’t just take our word for it…’
Here’s another proof that Rockschool is a really big deal! These guys used to have a TV show in the UK in 1980’s! Check it out as they were giving a lot of great tips about learning guitar as well as other instruments. CLICK ON THE IMAGES BELOW TO PLAY THE VIDEO
