NMPAT Brass Quintet

On Wednesday 4th October, pupils in Year 7 and 8 enjoyed a recital given by the NMPAT Brass Quintet. The students were treated to some fantastic performances, including music from Star Wars and Strictly, as well as learning about the instruments in the quintet.

One of the highlights included the students taking part in a piece using a homemade French horn - comprising of hosepipes, a mouth piece and a funnel. Lots of great buzzing occurred!

We all had a fantastic time, and are very grateful to Mr Turnbull on trombone, Mr Truman on French horn, Miss Coles on tuba and Ms Coventry and Mr MacFarlane on trumpet for such an informative and entertaining experience.

If you are interested in starting brass lessons, letters are available from Mrs Farrell or Mrs Armstrong.
