Whole Class Instrumental Tuition (WCIT) Schools Offer 2018-19

What Is WCIT?

The aim of WCIT is to provide young people the opportunity to learn to play an instrument as well as
developing musicianship through singing, rhythm games, basic notation and listening. Performance
opportunities are built into the programme so classes have the opportunity to perform.

Why have WCIT in school

A core requirement of the National Plan for Music Education is that every child should have the
opportunity to learn a musical instrument during their education for at least 1 term.
There are many benefits of learning an instrument:
● ‘a direct link between music and improved reading ability in children’
● ‘positive impact…on personal and social development’
● Ofsted say that children’s involvement in music engages and re-engages pupils, increasing their
self-esteem, and maximising their progress in education and not just in music. (Government Policy
Paper – The importance of music: A national plan for music education, 2011)
A priority for PMH is to encourage and nurture the progression of aspiring players, including those with a
glimmer of interest in early years. PMH teachers, in conjunction with class teachers, TA’s and Music
Co-ordinators, can identify students who have an aptitude and desire to learn following their WCIT
experience. For some this is start of a life-long hobby or, indeed, the first step on a rewarding career path.
