I have been told that the syllabus for Guildhall is much more interesting than the AB, but I can't confirm this as yet.
As far as Trinity are concerned, they offer exams in electronic keyboard, something which the AB don't do. They also have a viva voce test, which I think is great, as it encourages children to become "well-rounded" musicians.
I believe that either Trinity or Guildhall (can't remember which) allow the option of EITHER a sight-reading test OR playing from memory, something I wrote to this forum about some weeks ago.
It's certainly worth getting hold of a syllabus from all three boards and comparing them, something I intend to do in the near future. I suspect the standards will be very similar and although the AB has in the past been considered the prime examining board, I think the other two boards are rapidly catching up in popularity. Just choose the one you like the look (and the sound) of!
The ABRSM consists of 3 prepared pieces from a list for the grade, sight-reading, scales and arpeggios and aural tests.
Hope this helps on your decision
You missed out one more. However, whose exams you take, would depend on your priorities. The accreditions offered are not considered equal by Ministry of Education here. Yes, I'm in your country.xingshun wrote:In Singapore, there are three Piano Exam Boards from UK, Trinity, ABRSM and GUllHall.
