Information about Rockschool : Band Based Key Debut
The Band Based Keys series is designed for players who want to be a part of a band. The repertoire in these books at Grade 3, 4 and 5 is drawn from Rockschool's highly successful Guitar, Bass and Drum syllabuses.
The Rockschool packs have standard notation plus a CD. We encourage everyone to be creative with the Rockschool tunes so feel free to improvise and adapt them to suit your playing style and musical approach.
Each book includes a CD with full stereo mixes of each tune with spoken two bar count ins for each piece.
Rockschool grade books have everything you need to prepare for Grade exams (for players who want to develop performance and technical skills) and Performance certificates (for players who want to perform in a range of styles)
Pieces are no longer than 1 minute to enable the player to sustain concentration and fluency. They will use simple note values and rhythms. Hand coordination will be basic and the phase's fall within 5 finger shapes that occasionally require some finger changes. Articulation will be limited to understanding values and pieces will be written for 1 instrument patch only. Any simple instrumental techniques will be written out the music.
