why should i learn
guitar?

We have created fully accredited guitar courses for everyone. Learn guitar from scratch, whichever way you prefer, on your own, with a teacher or through our website via guided lessons. You also get the added bonus of knowing you’re learning from an internationally recognised syllabus with the benefit of being able to take an exam online at any time to earn a qualification – something that could help you earn a place at UK universities if that’s your thing. Or for those who can already play guitar & would like to put their skills to the test!

WHY ACCREDITATION IS
IMPORTANT

Recognised high standard qualifications

Over 50 years of producing top quality gear has given us a reputation for high standards: The Online exams have been approved and registered on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and  the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) with OFQUAL.

Having our courses approved means they can be legitimately used to broaden your career opportunities & help you feel empowered.

This has been enabled through our partnership with Online Music Exams and The Learning Machine. The exam materials have been written by experienced, qualified guitar teachers and examiners. The exams have been rigorously critiqued by independent testers during the last two years. These valuable contributions continue and the materials are always improving.

why THIS METHOD
IS BETTER

We give the student & teacher more control

This is a fully accredited exam experience for students wanting to take a graded approach to the guitar. Orange have collaborated with Online Music Exams to create the first accredited guitar grade experience held completely online.
