The Learn As You Play scheme in Gloucestershire provides opportunities for adults to learn to play an instrument within an ensemble. Beginners can join a group and learn together developing both ensemble and instrumental skill whilst enjoying making music in a social environment. But how does it work? Jennie Henley explores the issues of the social context of learning through participation based on her own research into adult learning ensembles.
