What is North Tyneside Brass in Schools?

North Tyneside Brass in Schools has been set up by the North Tyneside Music Education Hub in association with local Schools.

We run after-school brass groups in Primary Schools for children aged 8-11 (years 4-6), although these are curently suspended due to covid-19, and plan to establish a Youth Brass Band to give children the opportunity to continue to play and develop beyond Primary School age.

We teach the participating children to play music (brass and percussion) in an ensemble, learning about all aspects of music.

We aim to give the participating children a positive and enjoyable experience and develop their confidence, concentration, social skills and ambitions and maybe lead to a life-long hobby or even profession as musicians.

Attendance at all brass group activities, and the loan of an instrument and other equipment is free of charge. We rely on grants and donations and our volunteer music tutors.
