Taking Grade Exams

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by rodoherty1, Jun 2, 2004.

  1. Hi Guys,

    Just wondering how many of you out there take regular grade exams?

    I have been studying the RockSchool courses (info at for about a years now and I've found it hugely beneficial. I did Grade 3 in November and I have my Grade 4 exam on Friday (4th June 2004).

    Each course book cost me €20 and the exam is about €50. I haven't had a teacher for the last 6 months so it's been a combination of BassPlayer magazine, and Mark Levine's "The Jazz Theory Book" that have been tutoring since January.

    I'd be interested to hear from anyone who are doing similar, equally affordable/accessible courses.

    All the best,
