A good teacher can save you years of struggling, by showing you how to do things the best way from the start.
The Registry of Guitar Tutors was established in 1992 with the aims of improving the status and profile of guitar teachers, and helping to ensure their professional recognition within the mainstream of music education, by the establishment of an accredited range of comprehensive and well structured teaching programmes.
RGT organizes internationally recognized examinations in electric, acoustic, classical and bass guitar – from total beginner to Diploma level – in partnership with London College of Music Exams (one of the world’s most respected music examination boards, established since 1887) and certificated by Thames Valley University. All RGT graded exams are accredited by the Qualifications & Curriculum Authority (QCA), and UCAS points are available for grades 6-8.
The courses are suitable for ALL ages and exam centres are spread widely across the UK and overseas.
RGT publishes a directory of registered guitar teachers and bass teachers in the UK and overseas.
As well as publishing a full range of examination handbooks, RGT publishes a wide range of guitar education books, CDs and software – all designed to help you become a greater player sooner.
