Hi, hope you can help me
I am a primary school teacher, specialising in music and I have just gained an interview with the music service in my LEA to become an instrumental teacher. I am a pianist and have also taught recorder in schools. The questions for the interview are somewhat daunting! I am expected to know suitable pieces for teaching up to GCSE standard (so grade 4/5) but as I have never taught beyond grade 3 (for various reasons my students just haven't wanted to continue with exams) I am a little unsure of suitable pieces at this level.
a) come clean and say as much at the interview
b) mug up on pieces, repertoire, etc and hope that I can remember it all
c) write down some information and hope I am allowed to take it in to the interview with me!
Any advice is gratefully received. I so want this job!
