What is MusicPlus Digital?
MusicPlus Digital is Kent Music’s digital whole class ukulele course designed for keystage 2 children. The programme was designed in collaboration with some of the UK’s leading musicians, composers and educationalists to allow more children to get first access to instrumental tuition.
MusicPlus Digital (MPD) can be used either in conjunction with a specialist music teacher or as a standalone resource. Lessons are designed to be 45 minutes in length and to be delivered over 30 weeks. MPD is designed for KS2 children of year 4 upwards.
MusicPlus Digital is designed to meet the outcomes and aims of our MusicPlus framework and provide students with an opportunity to learn a musical instrument in a whole class setting, it is not designed as a curriculum resource.
