Registry of Guitar Tutors

The Specialists in Guitar Education

COVID-19 update – 18 March

Further to the Government's recent announcement we have decided to postpone all music and drama exams at all public and private centres within the UK and Ireland until further notice.

This difficult decision has been made in everyone's best interest and we thank you for your support and understanding.

In response to this we are introducing some alternative means of assessment. This will include an enhanced platform to upload a recorded Performance Award as well as the provision of full graded exams online. Both of these options have been approved by Ofqual, CCEA and Qualifications Wales.

Please bear with us as we finalise the arrangements. We will keep you all posted on the full details around these developments, but be assured we intend to carry on in every way we can.
