Please can you share your thoughts about the various piano exam boards?…
(ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall, London college of music, Royal college of music, northern college of music) so that i can make an informed choice as to which syllabus to follow in my attempt to teach myself piano through the grades.Eg Do the various boards have stylistic leanings etc? technical discipline preferences etc. I’m a lover of the romantic warm mellow singing piano tone.
Thanks for your help, Cat
Answer/ Hi Cat
That is a great question! The ABRSM is the most recognized board and definitely the best choice for classical music graded exams.
The well known ALL Talents Music School in Enfield, North London teaches the ABRSM syllabus, as do most music schools in the London area. I wouldn’t consider any other exam boards.
