Hi, my first post, first forum. Over 50 and hoping to take jazz grades starting at grade 5, have been taking lessons since Feb and tutor says I should be ready for grade 5 by xmas ?? Any advice much appreciated, thanks
Best of luck with your grade 5 Jazz exam, would that be with Trinity College? My teacher is pushing me, squeaking and squawking, towards my grade 6 Jazz exam. We've not discussed when I'm doing it, I'm thinking in about 5 years but I suspect she might have different ideas. Billie's Bounce is proving to be a bit awkward at the moment.
Thanks guys for your prompt replies. Have started this year from square one, never played any instrument before or read music but always been interested in listening to most kinds of music. I think I'm picking up the reading and understanding of it all pretty well considering, but obviously have got a long way to go. Its good to read about so many like minded people. It 's the Trinity College I'm hoping to take my grades with.
