Exotic Instrument Clubs

Fancy playing a musical instrument that’s a little bit different?

Bassoons, Oboes and Double Basses are slightly more ‘one-of-a-kind’ instruments in the orchestra and need special people to play them…that special person could be you!

NMPAT is looking for children in years 4 to 8 who would be interested in having weekly tuition on either the bassoon, oboe or double bass. We will provide you with an instrument, one reed per term (for oboes and bassoons) and help you to develop your skills over your first year of tuition.

Oboe club

Wednesdays 5pm to 6pm from 25 September 2019

Bassoon club

Thursdays and Fridays 5pm to 6pm from 26 September 2019

Double Bass club

Thursdays 5pm to 6pm from 26 September 2019


To join one of the clubs is only £30 per child per term with 10 sessions per term for the first year.

There will be consultation sessions (to check suitability and offer advice) on:

  • Wednesday 11 and 18 September
  • Thursday 12 and 19 September
  • Friday 13 and 20 September
