Musical Pathways Programme
The recommended way for schools to provide opportunities for children to learn a musical instrument.
We recommend all children in the school have:
1 year of learning an instrument in a whole class (First Access) followed by
1 or 2 years of learning an instrument in groups of up to 10 (Pathways Lessons)
Opportunity to move into specialist lessons – either individual or in groups of up to 4
The Musical Pathways is partly paid for by Arts Council England. We ask schools to match the funding that they provide.
