I have been trialling face-to-face lessons for the past few weeks and I’m pleased to announce that I am generally offering classroom based lessons again.

As required by all businesses, I have undertaken a risk assessment and have introduced the following changes to lessons.

Resumption of private piano lessons in Piano Studio – COVID-19 control measures.

My responsibilities

  • All common contact surfaces will be cleaned immediately prior to each student arriving, i.e. door handles, piano keys, music desk and piano stool.
  • Provision of hand sanitiser in the entrance to the studio for use immediately before and after each lesson.
  • I will take your temperature with a no-contact thermometer when you arrive.
  • I will use the electric piano where practical to play and demonstrate passages of music or technique.
  • Where closer contact is required, I will wear a face visor.
  • Ventilation will be maximised by keeping the door open where practicable.
  • There will be a period of your lesson where I will spend time cleaning the common contact areas.
  • If I am unwell, or need to self-isolate, I will not conduct tuition face to face but will revert to online teaching.

Student’s / parent’s responsibilities

  • Use hand sanitiser immediately before and after each lesson.
  • Bring your music books, notebook and pencil, but please avoid bringing any unnecessary items into the studio, such as water bottles, coats etc.
  • Arrive promptly for lessons. Don’t enter if there is a pupil still in the music room – look in the window to check and wait in the drive or in your car until they leave.
  • Only one pupil can attend at a time, so parents and siblings will have to wait in the car.
  • It will not be possible for pupils to use toilet/handwashing facilities in the house unless absolutely necessary – please ensure you go on the toilet before you come to the lesson.
  • If you or anyone in your household become unwell, or asked to self-isolate, please do not attend your lesson in person, but have the lesson online instead.

As you will see from the above, I am continuing to offer online lessons via Zoom. If you do not feel comfortable with face-to-face lessons, I have another post detailing what you will need to do to prepare for online lessons.

Limited availability

My Book Online page is the best place to find an available lesson slot. I have very limited availability to take on new students at the moment. If you cannot find a regular weekly slot, the Book Online page has a button for you to Join My Waiting List where you can let me know which day(s) and time(s) you would be available to attend lessons (both face-to-face and online). If your preferred slot becomes available, I will contact you.

If you would like to take your very first piano lesson or add to your existing piano education, please book a lesson with me today, you can book online.
