Trinity Grades 3-5 Acoustic Guitar 2020-2023

NEW ARRIVAL!

Acoustic Guitar Syllabus 2020-2023

This syllabus reinvents the previous Plectrum Guitar syllabus to recognise the importance of the acoustic guitar in today’s music. We’ve kept the most popular plectrum guitar pieces but added a much wider range of styles and technical work. This ensures that guitarists develop the blend of fingerstyle and plectrum technique they need to play the music they know and love.

Styles

This syllabus bridges the gap between classical and electric guitar incorporating folk, acoustic, rock and pop, jazz, blues and country styles. Explore pieces by Ed Sheeran, Bob Marley and Led Zeppelin alongside Django Reinhardt and Chet Atkins - all available in both standard notation and TAB.

Technique

The technical work is relevant to a range of popular music styles, including chord patterns and progressions, jazz scales, blues scales and modes, in addition to standard scales and arpeggios. Many of the pieces, particularly at the lower grades, can be played with fingers or plectrum.

Books and backing

There are three books available – for Initial-Grade 2, Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-8 – which contain a wide range of styles, allowing candidates to follow distinct stylistic pathways as they progress. Backing tracks recorded by professional session players allow guitarists to learn crucial ensemble skills by practising as part of a band.

Pro-skills

The syllabus is designed to reflect real-life demands and so includes material which features the different roles that an acoustic guitarist can fulfil: as a self-contained solo instrument, as a solo lead-line instrument or as an accompanying instrument. Developed by professional guitarists our online support resources show you what an exam is like, explore professional technique and look at where our exams can take you.
