Latest news
With the ending of restictions, face to face lessons and exams once again became possible. As the pandemic is still with us, some aspects have changed in order to keep everyone as safe as possible. This page aims to outline the current position and will be amended as and when necessary. Please check back regularly for the latest updates.

Face to Face lessons
I am back to teaching in person, and welcome all pupils who are comfortable to attend. In order to comply with government and NHS guidelines, lessons are subject to a risk assessment and revised, COVID-secure, working practices. The following provides a summary of my current approach and I require all pupils/parents to familiarise themselves with these points, and to respect them for the safety of all:

  • Keep up to date with government and NHS guidance and take on board any changes as soon as they are announced.
  • If the pupil (or anyone who attends the lesson with the pupil) is unwell, has tested positive for COVID19, or has symptoms of COVID19, please DO NOT come for your lesson.
  • On arrival, please wait in your car and send me a message to let me know that you are there. Remain in your car until I advise that you can come in. This allows me to maintain a 15 minute gap between visitors so that unnecessary contact is minimised, and gives me time to wipe down surfaces (including 88 piano keys!).

  • To help me with my schedule, please try to be punctual and unless otherwise arranged, do not arrive too early (e.g. more than 5 minutes before your lesson appointment time).
  • Anyone wishing to wear a face covering throughout their lesson is, of course, welcome to do so. I will also do so on request.

  • Hand sanitizer is available for use by all on entry to the music room.
  • Maintain distancing within the music room. I have two pianos set up for lessons, one for the student, and one for the me.
  • Try to remember all your books and also bring your own pencil!
  • Please note that I am currently only able to welcome one accompanying adult with pupils.

Online Lessons
I am not currently offering online lessons although they remain an option for the future should Covid-19 measures require them.

Theory Lessons
I am happy to continue with theory lessons via email, online, or during face to face lessons.

Practical Graded Exams
Face to face practical exams are taking place again on a near normal basis. The exam boards have introduced COVID-secure working practices, which candidates will be required to be familiar with and follow when they attend for their exams.

Performance exams
The new remotely assessed performance-focused exams continue to be availble.
