Information for schools

Dudley Performing Arts (DPA) has long been at the forefront of music education in the Dudley borough, both in the classroom and other community settings.

We have a track record of outstanding achievements and are proud of our long term partnership arrangements with schools. We have an understanding of local need and are always here for help and advice. 

Our greatest resource is our staff team – professionals dedicated to specialising in instrumental and vocal teaching. DPA staff members build up close working relationships with schools and we like to think of ourselves as part of the school and not just a visitor. Our experienced and qualified teachers can assist your school in ensuring you are delivering the core roles of the National Music Plan and wider arts offer.

Curriculum planning

We have developed our planning skills from many years of practice and from delivering the sessions in schools and the community. We have planning in place, including the physical layout of the plans, for pretty much everything you could imagine, from work in nurseries through to diploma level students at Sixth Form colleges.

Services for schools

This page lists a breakdown of the various services that DPA can provide to schools including: whole class and individual vocal and instrumental tuition; bands, choirs and orchestras; community projects with schools; and performances and shows at Netherton Arts Centre.

Community projects

Because of our links with schools and community groups across the borough we are able to join up with different partners to take part in projects that could not be achieved by a single school or group. This is further enhanced through our links with major players in the arts world such as the BBC. We are also a lead partner in music education with Arts Council England.

Taking part in performance groups - Dudley Music Education Hub

There is something for all school aged musicians in the Dudley Music Education Hub with groups, bands and ensembles for all instruments and all levels of ability.
