For Acoustic Guitar we've hand-picked tunes from some of the world's biggest artists across a diverse range of genres to provide students with an expansive song choice to use in their exam and for their own enjoyment.
Acoustic Guitar features some of the top session musicians in the industry who’ve recorded and performed with the likes of Queen, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, Rihanna and many more.
Music is always better when played together. Rockschool Acoustic Guitar features duet arrangements at every grade to enable student and instructor to practice and perform together.
There are currently two syllabuses available and there will be an overlap of examining in 2020. There are new grade books that go with the new syllabus and these will be available from November 2019.

Rockschool's Acoustic Guitar Syllabus has been created by a team of accomplished professional guitarists with diverse backgrounds and abilities whose combined experience has created a curriculum that will enable the student to become thoroughly accomplished in a wide range of techniques and repertoire.
What struck me about the tunes which I had the opportunity to contribute to was that they were associated with Robert Johnson and Jimi Hendrix, two of most influential artists in the history of popular American music.
