Welcome to North Tyneside Brass in Schools! We have been set up by the North Tyneside Music Education Hub in association with Backworth Colliery Band and local Schools. We run after-school brass groups in Primary Schools, and plan to establish a Youth Brass Band to give children the opportunity to continue to play and develop beyond Primary School age. See Aims and Objectives for more details.

The brass groups are open to all children from year 4 upwards. Attendance and the loan of an instrument is completely free of charge. All our professional and volunteer music tutors have enhanced DBS clearance. A teacher from the school is in attendance at all sessions. See Policies for more details.

We are currently running brass groups in Backworth Park Primary School, Balliol Primary School, and Burradon Community Primary School.

We have a Constitution and are managed by a Management Committee according to the rules and guidelines set out in our Rules, Policies and Procedures Document, a copy of which is available on request (see Contacts).

Please consider supporting our work e.g. by making an online donation or in other ways – see our Get Involved page.
