photoexamWhat a great effort by 17 of our students, aged from 8 to 60 years, who recently undertook practical assessment with the Australian Guild of Music and Speech. Assessment was done across all guitar styles of Electric, Acoustic, Bass and Classical.

Students take exams through the Guild for a variety of reasons. Some are starting on a pathway to a career in music, some are doing it as part of their school based education but many are simply using it as an achievable structure to gauge their progress. You can start at any level or age and move along the graded learning pathways that offer easily achievable goals that will accelerate your learning.

I think it’s a great way to enhance your learning of the guitar, especially for younger players. Many parents have told me of their child’s increased confidence, not just with the guitar playing, but with life skills generally.

If you think it may suit you, or need more information, ask me next time we get together.

Congratulations to everyone…..Leigh
