Whole Class Ensemble Teaching

The government’s National Plan for Music Education states that every child should have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument through whole class ensemble teaching (WCET). It is the responsibility of each school to ensure that this is possible for their pupils. WCET projects are led by high-quality music teachers who will develop musical skills that can be applied in National Curriculum music lessons.

Additional benefits of this scheme are the enjoyment it has brought to the children and more specifically in its ability to positively affect the self-worth, the organisation skills, the confidence and the musical development of the children involved. Many pupils choose to continue learning to play an instrument after completing their WCET programme.
