The Grade Examination System broadly targets two groups: students and teachers. Student Grades are used as an objective assessment of the progress being made in learning music, while the teacher Grades certify the performance ability as well as overall musical knowledge needed to provide music instruction.
The Yamaha Grade Examination System offers Performance Grades for Piano, Electone, Classical Guitar, Violin, Drums, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Bass, Flute, Saxophone, Pop Piano/Keyboard, Vocal and Fundamentals Grade.
They are classified into 3 categories: Student Grades (13 - 6), Teacher Grades (5 - 3) and Performer Grades (2, 1)
We also provide Fundamental Skills Survey for Junior Music Course students. The system is designed to examine performance abilities and general music knowledge, both of which are necessary for enjoying music, teaching music fundamentals and playing professionally.
