The Whole Class Ensemble Tuition Programme in English Schools -- A Brief Introduction
Fautley, Martin; Daubney, Alison
British Journal of Music Education, v36 n3 p223-228 Nov 2019
The whole class ensemble tuition (WCET) programme in English schools is a somewhat singular and relatively recent arrival onto the teaching and learning scene. It arose from a remark made by an English politician and has grown from there into becoming a regular feature in the music education landscape in primary schools. It has elements which will be familiar to music educators in many parts of the world, whilst having some aspects which are unique to the English context. In order to place the WCET programme into perspective, this paper outlines the policy context which gave rise to it and explains what it involves and how it is operationalised in schools.
