Hi everybody,

I'm looking into taking the Registry of Guitar Tutors Jazz Guitar Diploma exam and was wondering if anyone has experience with these and if it's worth while to take the exam. If you don't know about the exam you can read more here:

RGT exams - Jaz Guitar Performance Diploma

I've been a professional musician for years playing both jazz and flamenco, and someone recently mentioned this diploma. I live in Europe and in the public teaching environment any extra degrees are usually helpful.

My question is if anyone has taken the exam, seem the diplomas, heard of it, knows anything good or bad about it, etc.

I've posted in other forums and gotten a lot of peoples personal feelings on the idea of an exam. Thanks, but I'm not interested. I'd like to know if anyone has any first-hand experience with this exam board, or if they have a diploma from them if they've put it to use.

Let's get a few things out of the way so no one feels the need to comment on the obvious:

1) No exam truly measures your ability to play and/or improvise
2) If you're a good player a degree doesn't matter
3) Even if you're a good player, it doesn't mean you'll get a teaching job
4) A good player doesn't mean a good teacher

I would appreciate any comments on the subject.

Thanks,
Ian
