The RGT Electric Guitar syllabus is a fantastic way to continue your progress as a guitar player. Even if you do not want to enter any exams, it gives you some targets to achieve within a certain timeframe. Grades are available from preliminary to Grade 8 and are based around 6 main areas:
- Rhythm playing
- Lead playing (improvisation)
- Spoken tests
- Aural (listening) tests
The main reason I choose to teach RGT grades over any other board is because you can incorporate all of these skills into your knowledge as a guitar player and musician. That's not to say that you can't learn any songs because you're studying grades, but this will give you the correct platform to learn how to eventually do those things by yourself.
The RGT grades are wonderfully structured (including the acoustic grades too), and can only benefit your knowledge as a guitar player. If you are interested you can check out the syllabus here.
If you would like to have lessons with me to focus around these grades, I'm available for guitar tuition in Pontypridd, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Aberdare and Caerphilly. Please contact me for more info.
