Reflecting on his own musical journey, Jaime understands firsthand that learning music can be frustrating and unfortunately many students give up their journey. As a year 4 student, he loved learning the clarinet and playing in the school band. But what he didn’t like were the exams. At the time, AMEB was the only option and classical music wasn’t really what he enjoyed playing. Luckily for Jaime, he found a musical style he loved like Pop Clarinet and Jazz Saxophone and his Music Teacher motivated him to learn more.
The good news is that music technology has now offered new opportunities to learn what you love and still achieve the rigorous exam syllabus. At Gibson Online Music School, students can now select from over 25,000 pieces for their performance exams – from the Led Zeppelin to the Pink Panther and everything in between.
