CGPA Standard in Guitar Playability.



The project has been initialized, and a committee of academics, musicians and like minded people is in place to help guide the project. Since there is presently no such Standard in Canada to gauge guitarists playing ability, the CGPA is undertaking the task of doing so. Once our Standard is in place, it will be used as a basis for guitar teacher certification. As well, it can be used to issue a professional designation in guitar playing (e.g. the letters "P.Gr." after your name which stand for Professional Guitarist).  Members are kept abreast with developments, and are encouraged to give input in the category marked "Standard" in the Members discussion board.
