To get to Grade 1, on a new instrument in about three months.
Big wants to learn guitar. I don’t mind what I play. Dp is considering joining in and learning recorder.
I’m the only one with any musical experience, I’ve got grade three on violin and piano, and grade one theory. We’re not precisely a musical family :/ that’s all set to change.
I’d like to ask for your help and support. I’d like to do this for sponsorship, I’m thinking half for World Vision and half for our local Children’s hospice, EACH. But before anyone reaches into their pocket I need knowledge.
I’ve been told that I don’t need a teacher to enter exams, I can organise it myself. But I could do with someone explaining what we need to achieve. I happen to have a friend who reaches recorder, so I should be able to suss that one out, but I couldn’t make head nor tail of the ABSRM (is that even right) page about guitar. How do I work out pieces required? Don’t they sell little booklets with the pieces in any more?
Guitar – Big wants rock rather than classical. So if I go out in search of a guitar what am I looking for? Assume I know nothing and you’ll be about there.
When I mentioned this on twitter before, I had offers of loan instruments from a couple of people. I’d be very happy to take that further.
So, if you’ve anything to offer in the way of information or support please get in touch via comments, contact form or find me on twitter. Thanks.
Linky to come for other participants, am fairly sure there are a few more kicking about
