Rockschool Electric Guitar
From the Rockschool website: "The Benchmark for Electric Guitarists. Whether you’re taking your first steps on guitar or moving into further/higher education, a Rockschool Guitar Grade will not only improve your playing ability, but expand your technical proficiency and give you a solid grasp of music theory – all whilst learning some of the most iconic tracks from the world of popular music."
I have been teaching Rockschool Electric Guitar since 2012. They have been the leading rock exam board since 1991. They have selected songs from some of the world's biggest artist from a big range of genres. This provides students with an expansive song choice to use for their exams, or just to jam out.
"As with every Rockschool syllabus, Electric Guitar combines unrivaled industry relevance with academic credibility, giving students a wealth of technical, stylistic and theoretical knowledge that’s second to none." From https://www.rslawards.com/rockschool/graded-exams/electric-guitar/
All of the Electric Guitar books are available on Rockschool's website for instant digital download. These downloads include the books, full tracks of the songs, backtracks, and supporting tests. This allows you to use the resources on any digital device.
Rockschool does Band Exams as well. This allows Bass, Guitar and Drums candidates to play together. They are then assessed on their ability to play together, as well as solo instrumentalists.
With Grades 6, 7 and 8, students are awarded UCAS Points. With grade 8 you can get up to 30 UCAS points, with which to enhance your university application.
