Free MusicEL access for Cornish schools!
Cornwall Music Education Hub is offering one year of free access to MusicEL for any school having free First Access courses. Email the MusicEL manager to find out more.
The MusicEL (Music ELearning) platform has come out of Cornwall Music Service Trust’s experiences throughout the pandemic.
The pedagogy of eLearning is different (as we’ve all discovered by necessity), but has many long-term benefits – such as self-directed learning, and learning at your own pace. Alongside our curriculum courses for schools (below), your students will also be able to access courses at home for independent learning, for guitar, drums, ukulele, songwriting, music technology, and lots more. See our full list of courses here:
What will a MusicEL subscription for schools provide?
Access to courses tailored for schools
Blended learning or online courses in:
- First Access – whole class instrumental learning
- Wellbeing – courses for KS2 and KS3 students designed for use in assemblies or tutor time.
Full access for everyone in your school
All staff and students (or parents) in your school will be able to access our courses, in school or at home.
The aim is to encourage exploration of music, and support you in increasing school music activity.

Blended Learning – combining resources with in-person work.
With online courses available between sessions with a Cornwall Music Service Trust (CMST) teacher, you can use our resources in new ways.
For example with “first access” whole-class instrumental learning, the CMST teacher can help with on-the-job training so school teachers are confident to deliver the same courses (or follow on courses) themselves with other classes, to support the music curriculum, or for after-school clubs, even after the CMST teacher has finished.
In person teaching
In person delivery of sessions by a Cornwall Music Service Trust teacher supports the school in upskilling staff with on-the-job CPD.
By demonstrating how MusicEL courses can be used as “scaffolding” to support and structure lessons, school teachers can build confidence by co-leading sessions with our specialist teachers.
Training can also be arranged for MATs in using MusicEL as part of the model music curriculum.
We can arrange training for MATs and schools in person, or using video conferencing, and sharing resources.
