Whole Class Practical Musicianship

As a part of BMT's commitment to this Core Role of the National Music Plan, our Whole Class Practical Musicianship (WCPM) programme is designed to supplement a school’s music curriculum by teaching children musical skills through each of them playing a musical instrument.

This programme can be delivered to classes of children at KS1, KS2 and KS3, with sessions delivered to a maximum of 30 children per session.  Each session is delivered by one of our tutors with support from another teacher from within the school.

The programme is subsidised using the Arts Council grant to ensure that it costs £33 session, with commitment to a minimum of one term’s delivery through completion of an application form

Schools and parents are encouraged to support children to progress from Whole Class Practical Musicianship into school or Music Centre-based ensemble learning and/or further instrumental tuition as exemplified here:
