Whole Class Instrumental Tuition (WCET) 

 

Introducing children to the joy of music is at the heart of what we do.  Whole class instrumental Tuition aims to ensure  that every child between the ages of 5 – 18 is given the opportuntity to play a musical instrument for at least one term – a core requirement of the National Plan for Music Education. 

First Access (MUSIC4U)

Is a taster module delivered over one term which can be taught through a variety of different instruments.  The programme ensures that every child can experience enjoyment and success from the very earliest stages of musical learning.  Specialist instrumental tutors work alongside class teachers to offer well-planned progressive experiences.  First Access has revolutionised the way Music Education is accessed nationally with over two million pupils currently learning as pat of a whole class every week!

Continuation (MUSIC4U)

Builds upon the performance skills, creativity and aural awareness gained through the First Access (In2Music) programme.  Continuation programmes cn ensure progression over the course of an academic year or even beyond, allowing pupils tp progress to the next level.  Research has shown that 90% of children accessing the Whole Class instrumental Teaching programme benefit from positive mental health and improved social skills.

Both programmes lead to enhanced enrichment opportunities and partnership working.  Opportunities for your pupils to progress to instrumental tuition and ensembles providing lasting impact and value for money will be supported and encouraged.

 

Each First Access programme includes: 

  • One year of lessons

  • 45 minutes or 1 hour of in-school contact time per week with one instrumental tutor

  • Instrumental hire for the duration of the project

  • All resources and curriculum materials

  • Access to performance opportunities both in and out of school
