In2Music, formerly known as “Wider Opportunities” or “Whole Class Instrumental Teaching” is designed to give children in a whole year group the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. It is suitable for years 4, 5 and 6. We provide a trained tutor and a class set of instruments for your pupils to learn with. Currently we run trumpet, djembe, recorder, tuned percussion, violin, flute and clarinet projects. We will help you select a project that suits the needs of your pupils.
You will need to provide a space to store the instruments, a space for the teaching to take place (a classroom, a school hall or a music room), a member of staff to support the sessions and the opportunity for the children to perform at the end of the project.
The projects run for 10-weeks per term. If any of your pupils would like to continue learning the instrument after your project ends we can usually offer half price lessons.
“St Teresa’s Catholic Primary school has a very strong relationship with MMF. This collaboration has led to an excellent wider opportunities project that gives Year 4 children the chance to learn three separate musical instruments across the school year. The tuition is consistently of a very high quality and the organisation of the programme is excellent. Thank you for working with us to achieve such an important aspect of lifelong learning.” (Justin Dachtler, Headteacher)
