Teaching guitar in Bridlington, East Yorks: Acoustic, Electric & Bass
For those who want to develop technical skills I teach Rockschool grades. I also make use of eBooks, carefully selected online tuition videos and Lick Library DVD’s.
You can choose whether or not you want to sit the exams, but I find the Rockschool syllabus to be a very effective and fun teaching method.
Studying these grade syllabuses will help you become a musician rather than just someone who can play a number of songs well. You will learn the theory and practical exercises that form the building blocks of your craft. Learning songs by your favourite bands & musicians will hopefully give you the “fun” element that you need to stay motivated, and is the practical application of the theory you learn.
If you just want to learn songs, however, that is fine - there is no obligation to study for grades.
Both Rockschool and RGT’s Grade 6, 7 & 8 exams count towards UCAS points which help with entry to university.
The number of points the candidate will receive is based on their grade and mark, and range from 25 for a Grade 6 pass to 75 for a Grade 8 Distinction.
