Acoustic Guitar Performance Awards focus entirely on the performance of prepared pieces and are alternatives to the RGT@LCM Grade exams. Performance Awards can be performed at an exam centre, or alternatively candidates can submit an audio recording or video of themselves playing the pieces.
Performance Awards provide an ideal opportunity for those who do not wish to take the more comprehensive grade exam, to have their playing professionally assessed and to receive independent feedback on their playing from an experienced examiner.
The Filmed and Recorded Performance Awards are particularly suitable for those who find it hard to travel to an exam venue, or for those who get overly nervous in an exam situation, as performances can be submitted by disc or uploaded online.

RGT@LCM acoustic guitar performance awards are organised by London College of Music Exams (one of the world's most respected music examination boards, established since 1887) and certificated by the University of West London, resulting in a recognised standard by which the skills and abilities of acoustic guitarists can be assessed.
