For our new Rock & Pop exams, we've put together a series of songbooks featuring some of the greatest rock and pop music of the last 50 years. Visit our online store or your local sheet music retailer to buy songbooks.
When you take our new Rock & Pop exams, you’ll play some of the greatest classic and contemporary rock and pop music. You’ll have the chance to explore the music of a vast range of artists, from the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Kinks and Joni Mitchell through to Radiohead, Kings of Leon, Green Day and Jessie J.
Working with Faber Music and Peters Edition London, we’ve gathered the music into a series of songbooks. Each songbook gives you everything you need for your exam – the sheet music for six songs, a CD with demo and backing tracks, performance notes, guidance on technical and session skills and much more. Together, they represent a fantastic resource for rock and pop musicians. You can buy the songbooks in our online store.
A new set of books designed to support the Session Skills part of our exams is now available. There are three books per instrument and each book contains preparation tips and improvising and playback examples in styles that may be encountered in the exam, as well as an audio CD of backing tracks for the example tests.
We’ve also put together download bundles for individual songs, also available in the online store. Each bundle contains sheet music, backing and demo tracks, background information about the song and hints and tips on performance.
