Guidelines to stay safe when enjoying violin lessons
As of Monday July 13th, one-to-one lessons at my studio in York, and home visits will be available. This is inline with the governments latest guidance, which permits the resumption of ‘Close Contact Services’.
For all lessons, to reduce risk, the following rules will be observed:
Face covering to be worn by the teacher, but optional for the pupil.
Hands to be washed for a minimum of 30 seconds before and after the lesson.
Two stands to be used instead of one shared stand.
Keeping the recommended 2 meter distance between teacher and pupil at all times
For Studio lessons:
A clear passage will be in place from the front door to the teaching space.
The table students get their violins/violas out on and the toilet facilities will be cleaned before and after each lesson.
All doors and windows will be open to maximise ventilation.
For Home Visits:
Hand sanitiser to be used by the teacher before the lesson (teachers own sanitiser)
All doors and windows to be opened in lesson area to maximise ventilation.
Outdoor lessons in your garden or yard is an alternative option (weather permitting).
With these measures in place, lessons can take place in a safe and reassuring environment. For any further question, please email me at email@example.com
An alternative to one-to-one lesson is online lessons. Online lessons are increasingly popular for learning the violin.
Some advantages are...
More convenient- No travel time and more flexibility when scheduling lesson times. Cheaper- No travel time means no fuel costs. Technology driven- Online lessons take full advantage of multi media and online tools to boost the lesson experience.
