and continued into music careers as well-known recording artists.    Many others have taken up careers as music teachers.

The videos are examples of guitarists from seven years old upwards playing various styles of music in their lessons. Some play purely for fun whilst others also sit examinations, but there is no pressure to sit music exams, it is entirely personal choice.

Grade exams in Rock School, Trinity Rock and Pop,  A.B.R.S.M and Trinity Classical Guitar are all awarded UCAS  points which can help university entry.
