KS1/2 Music - Wider Opportunities in the Classroom



Through Wider Opportunities, the Government has pledged that every child in primary school should have the chance to learn a musical instrument. In this programme, we see how Somerset council has adapted the initiative to its schools.

Like other councils, Somerset has developed a whole school approach to their music tuition. We take a look at how whole class music eduction may be applied, looking at the distribution of funding, employment of instrument tutors and the sourcing and choice of instruments.

Find out how the whole class mentality can be applied successfully as we visit North Cadbury CE Primary School, Manor Court County Primary School, Hamp Junior School and Trull Primary School.
