I often get asked these questions by prospective parents.
a) What use are these certificates?
Answer: What use are no certificates? Jokes aside, most admissions are based on all round excellence. I know of my son’s friend who pretty much was a school topper. He did not make it to an Ivy School of his choice? Why? All brain and no art.
b) Are these certificates recognized?
Answer: It is times like this I thank this phenomenon called the Internet. Click here to find out more.
c) Why should I do these exams? I know I can play and that’s all that matters.
Answer: Presenting a certificate is one option. The other is to lug your guitar to all interviews and do an impromptou gig and hope that everyone has the time to see you set up and tune and do a sound check. Choice is yours.
