Take 2 minutes to see how easy it is to study for your music grades with Gigajam. Available for guitar, bass, keyboards and drums for debut through the grade 5.

AFFORDABLE MUSIC GRADES

With music grades being delivered online they no longer need to be expensive in terms of fees, or costly in terms of travel and time. Our music exams are just £10 for debut grade, with the most expensive being just £15 for grade 5.

A simple comparison to Trinity and Rockschool show that they charge much larger fees for the same qualifications. Currently, Trinity College charge £34 for their initial grade and £60 for their grade 5 in their Rock and Pop Exams. Rockschool currently charge £37 for their debut grade and £58 for grade 5.

 

INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED MUSIC GRADES

Students learning using Gigajam simply complete the exercises in their chosen instrument and upload and store their performances in their e-Portfolio. They can do this using either the video capture or award winning Analyser software. At the end of each grade they then have five songs to perform and store, proving their skill and fluency in performing on their instrument. Receive your internationally recognised music qualification, and a real certificate to hang on your wall.
