COVID-19 April 2021 Update

We are delighted to announce that we are now open again! We have some availability for new students for Bass, Drums, Guitar and Keyboard lessons, for face-to-face and online lessons. We continue to offer our great introductory offer of the first four lessons for £30 so please get in touch and we will be happy to get you booked in. 

Existing students should contact their teacher directly to discuss their plans as we re-open.

We will initially only be using a limited number of our teaching rooms at any one time to ensure we can operate in a "Covid-Secure" way. Please see below for full details of the steps we are taking to run lessons safely.

  • In general we are using rooms that allow us to maintain a 2m distance for the duration of the lesson. If this is not possible in any particular room we have additional mitigation such as screens etc. in place to adhere to the government’s advised 1m+ guidance. 

  • Please maintain social distancing and please wear a mask in all shared spaces such as the stairs/corridors. You are welcome to continue to wear a mask throughout your lesson at your and your teacher’s discretion.

 

  • Please arrive no more than 5 minutes before the start of your lesson. We are staggering lesson start times to avoid crowding in corridors but this will be helped by not arriving too early for your lesson.

 

  • Please clean your hands with the hand sanitiser provided in your lesson room upon arrival and please minimise touching of hard surfaces on your way through the building. 

 

  • Please bring your own instrument to your lesson, drummers please bring your own sticks. We cannot share instruments between students at this time.

 

  • Please maintain good respiratory hygiene (cough into tissues, dispose of carefully and clean hands).

  • If you have any potential symptoms of COVID-19 prior to your lesson please contact your teacher beforehand to discuss and please err on the side of caution

  • All teachers will maintain a minimum 5 minute gap between timetabled lessons and coordinate a 10min staggered timetable.

  • Rooms will be well ventilated.

  • Commonly touched hard surfaces will be wiped down as frequently as possible throughout the day - buzzer system, door handles, hand rail etc.
