Dear all, I’ve got another update from the Musicians Union outlining how we can operate within tier 4 guidelines:
“Online: As always private online music tuition is permitted and is the safest option where technology and connectivity is available. Follow our advice for teaching online.
Private teaching: Private tuition is permitted for students of all ages in homes and studios within Covid-secure guidelines. No cap on numbers as long as Covid-secure measures can be implemented. Learning must support formal education, e.g. working towards graded exams. Follow our advice for teaching during Covid-19.
Private music schools and music centres: Permitted for all ages, with no cap on numbers within Covid-secure measures. Learning must support formal education“
This means that we are able to stay open for face to face lessons provided the student is studying towards a grade or provided the tuition supports formal education. Which is actually most of you.
However, I would advise most of our students to temporarily switch back to online lessons as they’re the safest option.
If I haven’t already, I’ll be in touch with you individually to go through your options and do whatever I can to support your learning and to create a safe environment.
Thank you again for your continued support and commitment during these difficult times and Happy New Year. 🙂
