Whole Class Instrumental Tuition (WCIT)

WCIT or Whole Class Ensemble Tuition (WCET) 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. One instrument option per booking. A class set of instruments is included in the price and pupils can take these home to practice on - except Steel Pans & Taiko due to their size.

Pupils can receive WCIT for the first academic year (AKA First Access) 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 above to see and hear more about WCIT.

Brass (Baritone, Cornet/Trumpet, Trombone), Djembe drums, Guitar, Percussion, Recorder, Steel Pans (*available when booking for 3 terms only), Strings (Cello, Violin, Viola), Taiko (*available when booking for 3 terms only), Tabla, Ukulele & Woodwind (Clarinet & Saxophone).

DfE announces New Model Curriculum - 26 March 2021
The aim of the Model Music Curriculum (MMC) is to ensure a universal provision of music education, for all pupils in all schools. In time and resources, this provision is as follows:

At Key Stages 1 and 2, pupils should receive a minimum of one hour of teaching a week; this may take the form of short sessions spread across the week.

In Years 3 or 4, it is recommended that each class should start a whole-class instrumental programme lasting a minimum of one term.

The mandatory term will be supported by teachers from the local Music Education Hub.

Opportunities for development should continue beyond the mandatory term.

There should be access to both rhythmic and melodic instruments in Key Stages 1 and 2; this may be as part of the whole-class instrumental programme and/or in other classroom teaching. Music should have a minimum of one weekly period the whole way through Key Stage 3. Carousels are not a substitute that fits with the values of comprehensive education.
