At the end of each academic year, the Guitar Academy's most ambitious students have the opportunity to participate and achieve a graded certificate based on the guidelines set forth in the GEM curriculum. An expert adjudicator is a guest teacher to offer a non-biased opinion and grade. The great virtuoso, Matt Palmer, was the guest teacher. These are the photos from the students who participated in this year's GEM exams receiving their award. Congratulations to everyone who participated! Pictured are Jack Chen, Tommy Chen, Dr. Dan Chen, and teacher/student Victoria Tarbutton. Not pictured Dorothy McCormick.
