Help, resources & planning
On this page you will find plans for each step of the CPM Guitar Examinations that you can download as PDF files. I have adapted them from the 2001 CPM Guitar Handbook (by AMEB NSW) to help you prepare and tick off the work as you revise.
I will also provide online tools to help you prepare for the aural ans theoretical sides of the examination. Don’t forget to visit the Guitar Matters & Music Ed Links pages for more links and inspiration.
