What is Whole Class Instrumental Tuition (WCIT)?

WCIT or Whole Class Instrumental Tuition involves weekly, 45 minute lessons being delivered to your whole class, so that all pupils in the class learn at the same time. Lessons take place in the classroom, led by our staff. We aim to deliver a minimum of 10 sessions per term.

Lessons can be booked for 1,2 or 3* terms. We recommend 3 terms, to ensure that students are able to form a strong bond with music to help enthuse and inspire them to take their music making further. We offer a variety of instruments - subject to availability. Please see below for details.

Pupils can receive WCIT for the first academic year (AKA First Access / WCET) and then move onto Progression, which follows the same format as WCIT but allows pupils to continue their learning journey and progress even further.

Both WCIT and Progression can be booked using our simple online form.

Please see our WCIT Brass video to the right to see and hear more about WCIT.

What next? How do WCIT pupils continue their Musical Journey?

When pupils have completed their first year of learning through Whole Class Instrumental Tuition, schools can book Progression lessons (sometimes referred to as Continuation) which build on the strong musical foundations pupils have developed during their first three terms' learning.

Our Progression lessons will further enthuse and empower pupils whilst providing them with the skills they will need to continue their musical journey by joining a school group, local music group or one of the many music making opportunities provided by Leicestershire Music.

Progression can be for a whole class as per WCIT, but can also be for part of a class.

Please click here to book Progression for your students using our simple online form.
