"All children should have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument"
15th January 2021
As a result of the Third National Lockdown and closure of schools, we are making plans with partner schools who are able to facilitate on-line lessons, and have started work in some of them. We are aware that not all schools will be able to facilitate this, and not all staff may be in a position to deliver lessons. We will provide lessons wherever circumstances allow.
County Group rehearsals and individual lessons will not be taking place face-to-face during the period of the Lockdown. We have reduced the number of County Group rehearsals that we will be meeting on-line. County Group conductors and teachers will share details of on-line sessions with their groups.
We will continue to follow Government guidance when considering options for the future and will return to face-to-face activity as soon as this is permitted.
The NMPAT Virtual Centre is meeting on Saturdays and welcomes any new members or visitors who may like to join us. To register for the Spring Term as a new students please visit use the online form.
Thank you to everyone who continues to support us through this difficult time. We look forward to seeing you all later in the year, and hope to invite you to a performance sometime soon
Peter Smalley, Chief Executive
