I'm thinking about trialling a new scheme of work with year 7 using the Associated Board Music Medals - essentially teaching them to play the keyboard in a similar way to the wider opps (have done some observation and seen teaching materials from my local music service) and then offering them the opportunity to enter for the most appropriate medal in the summer term - they would probably have to attend an after-school club as well, but I think that most of the students who will be complete beginners could achieve copper. Has anyone done this with secondary? I'm in a school of very few instrumentalists and money is tight so I've got an eye on my future GCSE intake. I've got quite a few of the books and I'm about to start creating and developing resources. (I'm aware that I may have some pianists/students who read music etc. and will differentiate accordingly.) I did a quick search on here and there are several threads saying people were thinking about it, but I would be really interested to hear from anyone who has actually tried it and how successful it was.
