As you will be aware, a new month-long lockdown will be introduced by HM Government from Thursday this week.
Monday to Wednesday of this week will be business as usual at Coda, so if you have regular lessons at the Music Centre, please attend as normal.
The centre remains a safe place to have lessons, with all government guidelines followed and safety precautions in place.
If you would prefer an online lesson this week instead, please let us know and we will switch your lesson from an ‘in-person’ lesson to online and provide you with the necessary login details.
From Thursday 5th November, in line with the new government restrictions, we will need to close the Music Centre until 2nd December.
However, we will continue to teach and work remotely during this lockdown period so that you will continue to have your music lessons.
Lessons will NOT be cancelled, but for all of our students who currently have face-to-face lessons, your lessons will be delivered online via Zoom during this second lockdown. We will get the Zoom login details out to you as soon as possible.
Those who already have online lessons will be unaffected.
There are a couple of exceptions to this. Unfortunately, we will need to postpone the re-starting of drum lessons. These cannot be delivered online, so these lessons are back on hold until December.
Also, our new ‘in-person’ group sessions for Ukulele Band and Folk Orc will be postponed for the moment.
Our tutors have been delivering lessons online for some time now, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, so we are confident that the standard of teaching will be as good as in-person tuition.
For those of you who haven’t had online lessons previously, we have some easy guidance for getting the best out of online lessons: click here
Also, please take a look at Coda’s Online Safeguarding policy and guidelines, which you can access online: click here
If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, we will be making the necessary arrangements to deliver lessons with as little disruption as possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to continuing to make music with you throughout this new lockdown.
