What the teachers at Morningside School of Music think about the Rockschool grades?

“We have used the Rockschool graded syllabi for as long back as I can remember, and as far as popular music grades go, there is nothing out there that even comes close in terms of educational quality. The other very important aspect about Rockschool is that it is extremely fun for all ages! When people ask me what is the best approach in learning the guitar, I always recommend Rockschool. The songs are really well written, drenched in real life musical techniques that have to be part of any well developed musicians tool box. If you haven’t done Rockschool grades, you really are missing a trick!”
Mike Scott – Guitar Teacher at Morningside School of Music
