  • Built-in metronome and tuner

  • Ability to record and email audio and video for teacher review

  • Remote virtual learning designed for music instruction

  • Recorded lessons

  • Access to 100% of the Rockschool Library including sheet music and backing tracks (this also counts as a purchased copy for exams)
