    I personally am a grade 7, but want to know what other think of doing grades.

    I'm guessing you mean RCM, not grade school, and I doubt it will mean much to most of TB. I am impressed by it but I would never pursue it at this point in my life. I can handle the theory and knowledge for the first couple tests, I have them at home, but my reading is one of my weakest points.

    Royal Conservatory of Music... maybe that is a strictly Canadian thing.

  12. Grade means different things to others.
    Is this British talk?
    This is what grade 7 means to me.

    Ok, you might want to be clearer and more specific. I had to google "grade 7 bass" to even guess at what you were trying to say. This forum is international and we don't have rockschool in the states.

  19. No need to apologize, just the ones that answered you first did not understand your British talk. :smug:

    RCM goes up to grade 8 I believe, I do not know what is at each level though. What system are the grades from in the British system? How high does it go? I cannot imagine our systems are that different and I would think there would be an American equivalent but I really have no clue.

    I know you need an RCM of level 2 or higher to get into university level music education here in Canada.
