What next after Grade 8?

If you have passed Grade 8, then you have achieved something special as a musician. The highest grade is often compared to a black belt in martial arts. Professional musicians however regard Grade 8 as a starting point and are more concerned with ability to play and read competently in a variety of styles and the "feel" that you give to your musical contribution as well as the ability to improvise. We recommend that Grade 8 students carry on learning, by deveoping their reading skills or studying for a Diploma. ICM now offer tuition for the RockSchool Performance and Teaching Diplomas - heavy weight qualifications for the real world of work as a musician or teacher. Contact us to get started.
