Trinity Guildhall or ABRSM?

Hi there,

Possibly one for those that are based in the UK. Which of these two exam systems would you recommend? I'm aware that Jazz learning goes much further with Trinity (> grade 8 as opposed to grade 5 only), but from the websites it seems that they are pretty even in what they offer, aside from this. Is ABRSM really more classical in the end? Is Trinity more contemporary in learning material? Does this matter? My aim is to be a better player. Thoughts?

I teach the ABRSM Jazz syllabus. Reason: when i looked and compared Trinity the materials were fairly similar for the early Grades (1 to 5 as you say) but ABRSM support materials are better, I think - Book/CD backing packs etc. Some people do find studying towards exams motivating.
