Welcome to the NMPAT Duston Centre. Our dedicated team of teachers run a rich and varied array of activities which cover music, drama and dance, as well as activities for ‘early years’ students. Our centre has a strong ‘community’ feel, with a parent led ‘friends’ group who help with the tuck shop and the general running of the centre.
Activities include music, mime, song, ocarina, kazoo, recorder, ukulele and percussion.
We offer a large variety of music groups which include wind band, folk group, orchestra, jazz band, rock bands, ukulele, percussion, guitar classes, ‘grown up’ band, choir and much more. All standards are catered for, from the novice to the more experienced player.
We offer both dance and drama at the centre. No experience is required for these sessions which are called ‘street dance’ and ‘movement and drama’.
We offer a variety of activities for children who don’t yet play an instrument. These activities include drama, dance, choir, keyboard, percussion, music theory and ukulele.
If you would just like to come and see what we do, you would be most welcome to come for a taster session with no obligation to sign up. Just turn up and someone will be able to show you what there is to see.
