Support for Schools

Key Stage 2 Whole Class

One of Barnsley Music Hub’s key objectives is to provide whole class ensemble tuition projects (WCET) for KS2 classes, where children can learn to play a variety of instruments alongside their entire class in school. These projects are primarily delivered by the hub’s lead organisation Barnsley Music Service. Schools are loaned instruments for these projects, and are given the opportunity to take part in a celebration performance in a professional venue at the end of the year.

Key Stage 1 Musicianship

KS1 projects offer full classes of pupils the opportunity to develop key musical skills for the future. They primarily use the voice, but also descant recorder and/or classroom percussion. These projects embrace the Kodaly approach and philosophy of music teaching through a methodical, systemic approach promoting good general musicianship and skills.

Group/Individual Music Lessons

The hub offers music lessons to small groups and individuals seeking to learn an instrument. If you have children in your school who would like to explore this further, we would recommend that you direct them to the ‘What do you want to learn?’ page of this website. This has been designed for the children themselves to explore what type of instrument they might wish to learn.

CPD opportunities / Schools’ Music Education Plan (SMEP)

To supplement the specialist teaching that we offer, the hub delivers CPD sessions to enhance the skills of your own staff. Our CPD sessions are designed to build confidence in teaching staff who may not have a formal musical background.
