Rudiments Online


Learn at your own pace with our Rudiments video series

Learning Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced Rudiments has never been easier or more affordable with our new RCM Theory video series.

How it works

Each level contains a series of lessons that may be completed on a weekly basis, or at a pace comfortable for the student. The weekly material is presented in a clear, concise and easy to understand manner. At the conclusion of each lesson, students are given specific instructions on which assignments to complete and mark. Lessons are available for unlimited viewing from the time of purchase until the exam date.

How easy are the courses?

As with any learning endeavor, the Rudiments Video Series requires dedication and diligence. No task can be done properly without proper attention. Students must be willing to put in the necessary time and effort into learning the material effectively. Completing and marking the weekly assignments are essential to success. Alternatively, homework assignments may be submitted for evaluation. But although these courses are not taught live, students do have the opportunity for live tutorials — as many as necessary. Once the course content is complete, students are expected to complete as many practice examinations as possible. These will be evaluated and returned with feedback, and live sessions may be arranged to review the work. We are there for you every step of the way.
