CofBC Pop 1 graded play-through #1

My Pop 1 guitar students at the City of Bath College were set a task to learn a song to performance standard for a play-through to a classroom of their peers on their return to college this term.

The class were asked to consider the following:

– Fluency
– RH/LH technique
– Rhythm
– Sync (timing)
– Confidence and presentation
– Stylistic awareness

Here are a selection of performances:

Gus Hackett – Blue Moon by Rodgers and Hart

Lee Snow – The Groove by Muse

You’ve never had it so good…

One of the key learning opportunities from performing in front of a room full of your peers is that they will be your kindest audience you’re ever likely to perform to. A paying customer will not be appreciative of a poor performance and a judges panel or audition for a band/university place will not take too kindly to an unprofessional attitude.

X-Factor - There may not be a more attractive panel of judges anywhere else but in the real world the scrutiny is just as tough.
