Curriculum Support

Our specialist tutors can assist in the delivery of your music curriculum at primary or secondary level.

MAPAS tutors can be booked to teach weekly sessions to different year groups depending on your need. All tutors have their own schemes of work but will work closely with your school to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum to your students.

Already happy with the curriculum teaching in your school? Great! MAPAS are on hand for support and advice any time of the year. Whether it is to discuss the recently published Model Music Curriculum or the new National Plan for Music Education - we've got you covered with the latest updates.

We can also advise on a range of different software available to help your non-specialists deliver the music curriculum in your school. MAPAS get excellent discounts for schools from a range of companies so please get in touch to find out more.

Whole Class Instrumental Tuition (WCIT)

WCIT allows primary school pupils to learn a musical instrument for a year.

WCIT (also known as First Access or Wider Opportunities) enables Key Stage 2 pupils to learn a musical instrument as a whole class for a year under the guidance of a specialist MAPAS tutor.

A wide range of instruments can be used to deliver WCIT. The choice of instrument is arranged in conversation with the school based around your preference and availability. 

Taking part in a WCIT project creates further opportunities for your pupils - alongside learning to play their instrument pupils complete their Arts Award Discover; a nationally recognised qualification. All classes are also invited to take part in our summer showcase and perform on the nationally renowned stage at The Lowry theatre.

If you would like to discuss starting a WCIT project in your school, please get in touch!

Instrumental Tuition

Our specialist tutors can offer small group or individual tuition on a range of instruments in your school.

MAPAS can offer tuition on any instrument and all tuition is given by an experienced tutor who meets our quality standards.

Our tutors are also available to help you run school ensembles such as choirs, bands and orchestras. 

We strive to make music lessons accessible and inclusive - with this in mind we are able to offer the loan of an instrument free of charge for pupils to learn to play.

Instrumental tuition can be charged through school or set up to bill parents directly, removing the administrative burden from your school. To discuss suitable options for instrumental lessons in your school, contact us today!

Singing Support

MAPAS is determined to make every school in Salford a Singing School

To that end, we offer advice on the development of singing as part of the curriculum across a range of subjects. Supporting schools to start and develop a choir is also an important part of the work of our team. We have packages with different levels of support to help with setting up a new choir including CPD, resource ideas and team teaching with one of our experienced tutors.

We are able to offer vocal tuition as part of our instrumental tuition package and our MAPAS vocal tutors can also help you with singing assemblies in your school.

We run a range of events throughout the year to support schools to embed singing into school life. To find out more or to keep up to date with the latest events, please get in touch.
