Graded Music Exams & Awards

Pupils learn songs, techniques, ear tests and general music theory in order to train for the exams. The process is rewarding and a great way of learning. Passing Grades 6-8 will also earn students UCAS points.

Graded exams are available in Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Drums, Ukulele, Bass Guitar and Music Production. I teach with both Rockschool and RGT exam boards.
