In this post I will tell you a bit about the vocal syllabus I use with my kids and teens students – Rockschool. – a syllabus designed for contemporary musicians. As a vocal coach and singer, I stumbled upon Rockschool when I moved from Argentina to New Zealand, facing the challenge of teaching songs in English. Little did I know that this discovery would change my approach to teaching and transform the learning experience for my students. In this article, I’ll share my insights into why Rockschool is a fantastic choice for vocalists of all ages and the benefits it offers to aspiring musicians.
Rockschool is a comprehensive syllabus specifically designed for contemporary musicians. Catering to beginners and professionals alike, Rockschool focuses solely on contemporary music genres, making it highly relevant and engaging for modern-day vocalists.
Through Rockschool’s structured approach, students are provided with clear objectives and deadlines, which fosters faster and more organized progress. Whether you’re a child or an adult, having a concrete goal ignites focus and motivation, both crucial to develop strong singing skills.
Rockschool is not limited to a specific age group; it embraces singers of all ages. If you’re a child just starting out, there’s a perfect entry point for you and alternatively, if you’re an adult looking to refine your vocal skills, Rockschool has a tailored program that suits your needs.
While Rockschool offers performance certificates, opting for the full grade exams is highly recommended. Through the full grade option, you’ll delve into technical exercises, music and voice questions, and perform three songs from the syllabus book. This comprehensive training not only polishes your vocal abilities but also equips you with valuable music skills that elevate your overall musicianship and help you communicate effectively with other musicians – for example, if you are a member of a band.
In Rockschool’s technical exercises, vital musical elements are covered, including scales, arpeggios, intervals, sight-reading, improvisation, ear training, as well as melodic and rhythmic exercises. By honing these fundamental skills, you’ll not only become a proficient singer but also a well-rounded musician capable of harmonious collaboration with other artists.
Rockschool offers a clear and structured pathway to achieve qualifications in contemporary vocals. Progressing through preparatory grades to grade eight and beyond, singers can attain diplomas at level four and level six, which provides the students with an internationally recognised qualification in contemporary vocals.
To enter the diploma level, it’s not necessary to complete all the grades, however, reaching grade eight is essential to ensure that candidates can handle the diploma’s challenging content effectively.
If you are a passionate vocalist seeking to excel in contemporary music, Rockschool presents an exceptional opportunity to nurture your talent and become a well-rounded musician. The structured syllabus, clear goals, and flexible options for all ages make Rockschool a sought-after choice for singers worldwide. So, whether you’re just starting or looking to upskill, consider Rockschool as your pathway to contemporary vocal proficiency.
