I am very happy to have found this forum! I am teaching part time in a small school which expecting an HMI visit at any time. Over the past year, there has been quite a bit of disruption to music teaching. I have lost both teaching and storage space, but managed to retain a set of keyboards that allows pupils to work in pairs or individually. SMT do not seem to be very happy about this. I am aware that some schools have policies of restricting access to keyboards and that they can be over used. However, I think that the idea that OFSTED don't like them (if that is the reason) is something of an urban myth. However I have just downloaded a few lesson plans which achieved OFSTED 'outstanding' and keyboards were used. Really need to convince SMT that this can happen! I have very limited space or resources for an alternatives to keyboards for composing and performing work. Some of the pupils have limited vocal ability due to their Special Educational Needs. Equally to play a wind instrument for example. I have previously worked in a Wider Ops settting, and completed the training, and also have followed Musical Futures for many years.
