“By 2012 we believe that all primary school pupils who want to will have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.”
– Secretary of State for Education & Skills, 2011
Somerset Music delivers music lessons in schools across the county. At KS2 whole class ensemble tuition (WCET) is targeted to Year 4 although mixed classes can be accommodated as can other year groups. This teaching is heavily subsidised by the DfE through the annual music education grant and the hire of instruments is included in the cost providing excellent value for money.
You need Continuation Tuition. This is a Somerset Music initiative and follows on from WCET. If your school has completed a year of WCET your students are offered instrument hire free of charge for the first term of tuition to those taking part in Somerset Music continuation sessions!
