Hi Shed Family,
We hope everyone is well, we’d like to thank everyone who has continued their lessons online we’ve had positive feedback from all students, tutors and parents but we are ready to get back to teaching at the school and we cannot wait to see you all again from July 1st!
If you look on our social media pages, you will see all the hard work that has gone into making the school as safe an environment as possible for our teachers and families. We have incorporated new social distancing markers, maximum attendance numbers, invested in a large number of extra large sneeze screens for each room, a full risk assessment has been taken, cleaning stations in each room are filled with hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and tissues and equipment will be wiped down after each lesson. The entrance area, toilets and waiting area are cleaned daily (a cleaning sheet is on display at the top of the stairs to display a record of how often the school is being cleaned). We hope that these measures make you and your loved ones feel safe and comfortable when coming back.
After the positive feedback and responses we have received regarding our online lessons, we are continuing to offering them as a permanent alternative to your learning. This will make rescheduling lessons easier and more practical.
For now we will be continuing vocal lessons online until September.
We ask of our students that when entering the school you following the guidelines that have been emailed to each of you, along with a copy of our risk assessment. These guidelines are:
We have a hand sanitizer station at the top of stairs, we ask that all people entering and leaving use it or alternative you can wash your hands on entry to the school with the antibacterial handwash supplied in the make and females toilets.
Equipment within the teaching studios will be regularly cleaned between lessons
Our waiting area has a three adult and three children maximum capacity, we ask that when waiting you adhere to the social distancing markers. Where possible we ask that you wait outside the school for your child to finish their lesson. We know that this is not always possible so we ask if you wait in the waiting area and have small children you please make sure they do not wander around the rest of the building.
We ask that all students bring their own guitars and drum-sticks to reduce cleaning of instruments, piano will be wiped down after every lesson.
Masks or face coverings are optional. We do not supply masks to our students.
Any tutor feeling unwell with Covid symptoms will work from home and switch to online lessons for the period of isolation, as long as they are fit to do so.
Any student feeling unwell with Covid symptoms should not attend the studio and will have the option of taking their lesson online for the period of isolation as long as they feel well enough to do so.
We will contacting each of you personally to confirm your lesson times and start date.
In the meantime if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to working with you all again!
Dave, Dawn and The Music Shed team!
