INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED GUITAR COURSE
Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT@LCM) – Preliminary to Grade 8
My Guitar School is the Sydney Representative for the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT@LCM) and together with London College of Music – one of the world’s most respected music examination boards; we offer guitar exams for Electric and Acoustic Guitar from Preliminary Grade through to Grade 8 and even Diploma levels. We are one of the first guitar schools in Australia to offer this system.
Using the RGT@LCM system of teaching guitar, the students will be graded at regular intervals that keep the student moving forward, and at the same time give an indication of their rate of progress.
Grading has been formulated to gradually develop skills and knowledge, specifically for the guitar and all the styles associated.
Our teachers are very experienced in communicating & teaching with a sense of fun so that learning is an enjoyable experience.
Many students of My Guitar School have progressed to advanced levels and are now professional performers or are pursuing a career path as a music teacher.
