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've used the ABRSM materials for years. What I like about them is that they give a reasonably balanced and structured curriculum and organised goals. I've used the piano, french horn, flute and others simultaneously. So I might be at one level in the flute program and another in the piano. It helps me keep track of where I am.
