Under the first National Plan for Music Education, published in 2011, Whole Class Ensemble Teaching programmes proliferated across England, to the extent that there were over 700,000 children involved in learning to play an instrument through these. Variously described as ‘First Access’, ‘Wider Opportunities’, ‘WCET’ and ‘WCIT’, these programmes are characterised by a whole class of children learning to play the same instrument, or instruments from related families, at the same time. Usually these programmes are delivered by a music specialist teacher provided by a Music Education Hub.
