Classroom instrumental lessons (CIL) for KS2
Government funding allows every child the chance to learn a musical instrument for free!
In Years 3 or 4, it is recommended that each class should start a whole-class instrumental programme lasting a minimum of one term. [Model Music Curriculum]
Not only do our programmes offer pupils a fantastic free musical opportunity, they also enrich your school.
Curriculum support and CPD
Are you looking to review your school’s music curriculum? Need advice on suitable resources? Or, need to improve your ukulele skills?
We work with headteachers, music subject leaders or small teams, whatever fits best with individual school development plans to improve confidence in music delivery.
Co-curricular & extra-curricular
Our specialists provide inspiring enrichment activities to boost access to musical engagement in schools. We can run one off or ongoing music activities such as:
- Choirs, Bands or Orchestra
- Before-school or after-school music clubs
- Workshops for students
- Live music performances by professional musicians
