The Rockschool Ukulele syllabus has evolved. Master the ukulele with Rockschool’s first fully regulated suite of ukulele grades (Debut – Grade 8), regardless of age or musical ability. Play your part on the instrument everyone loves to play.
The ukulele is in a unique group of instruments with re-entrant tuning. The Rockschool Ukulele syllabus develops instrument-specific techniques through digestible benchmarked topics guaranteed to equip students with the practical skill and theoretical knowledge to perform at the highest possible level, across a range of contemporary styles.
Meticulously researched and specifically benchmarked, the Rockschool Ukulele Grades feature a collection of tracks from some of the world’s greatest artists, films and musicals, immersing each student to an array of genres, styles and instrument-specific techniques.
Rockschool Ukulele’s technical requirements have been upgraded to mirror Rockschool’s well-loved Electric and Acoustic Guitar syllabuses.
Designed for all aspiring musicians, each grade includes four session-style songs featuring recorded vocals, and two instrument-specific solo ukulele arrangements (these are duets at Debut – Grade 3).
Rockschool Ukulele has been designed with industry relevance, student engagement, and academic rigour in mind. Every practical, theoretical and aural test has been written and developed by industry professionals to give students an unrivalled level of academic assurance.
