Hello fellow music teachers. I have recently received some wonderful news that I have been offered the position at an international school in china for head of music, and indeed the only music teacher. I gladly accepted. Now, it is going to be a new school and a new department. I will be teaching GCSE and A Level music from the Edexcel Curriculum only. The school development officer wants me to put together a list of resources needed for the successful running and implementation of the music curriculum. Please note that is it only GCSE and A Level music and not KS3. I was wondering, if you had the opportunity to 'build' a department, what would be you wish in terms of resources. I have asked for a percussion kits, drum kit, world music instruments, guitars, keyboards, apple mac suite for garage band and compositional purposes, IWB etc etc. But when it comes to books I don't know what I should order. I greatly appreciate all your help and advice.
