Performances can be inspirational and motivational – working to raise pupil's self-esteem and sense of achievement. We provide at least one in-school performance as part of a WCET or Continuation programme. This can be during the normal lesson time, or it may be possible to arrange a different time depending on your Music Leader's other commitments. You might also be offered the opportunity to apply to take part in a larger scale performance. This would be out of school time and involve joining with other WCET schools to create a massed ensemble.

Supporting progression for children that have already taken part in a WCET or previous continuation programme, continuation gives children the chance to consolidate their musical learning and really make progress in their instrumental playing skills.

The Small Group option (13 or less), works really well for pupils in their third or even fourth year of learning. An accredited assessment scheme such as Music Medals or Rock School exams can be included, providing motivational goals and tangible rewards for the children. Schools can choose to ask parents to contribute to the cost if they so wish.

'I really value the WCET programmes. They help me to identify gifted musicians and are very inclusive for all pupils.
The enjoyment that pupils get from learning to play an instrument is very rewarding and I strongly believe every child should have this opportunity. WCET helps us to achieve this.'
