Whole Class Instrumental Tuition (WCIT)
Haringey Music Service offers 30-week programmes of whole-class ensemble teaching to KS2 pupils (aimed primarily at year 4), delivered by specially trained teachers, including the opportunity to continue learning in years 5 and 6. It will help your school meet the DfE pledge that ‘all pupils will have the opportunity to play a musical instrument’ as well as helping to achieve the goals set out in the National Plan for Music Education, which OfSTED uses as a benchmark.
We offer the following instruments:
- Strings − Violin, Viola and Cello
- World Percussion − Djembe (African drums)
How it works
30 weeks per year/ normally 10 sessions per term:
Each session will normally run for up to 3 hours and include:
- Year 4 whole class lesson-up to 45 minutes. The music teachers will require 15 minutes set up time each week.
- Year 4 backup support sessions to focus on individual technique for up to 30 minutes each. Roughly 5 children per group.
- Year 5 & 6 continuer ‘band’ lessons. Up to 2 classes x 30 minutes.
- HMS provides two teachers for the whole session.
Days and times:
- Unless otherwise requested, sessions in schools which already have WCIT will be scheduled as currently provided.
- Sessions in schools new to WCIT will be mutually agreed before the end of the summer term. However, this will ultimately be subject to teacher availability.
