COVID-19 – Instrumental & Vocal Lessons Q&A
What happens to the instrumental/vocal lessons I’ve paid for but weren’t delivered?
If the school was open but refused access to the B&NES Music Service tutor will I still be reimbursed for any lessons my child didn’t receive – YES
If the school was closed prior to the Government’s decision will I still be reimbursed for any lessons my child didn’t receive – YES
Following the Government’s decision to close all schools will I still be reimbursed for any lessons my child didn’t receive – YES
We will be gathering information from each instrumental/vocal teacher regarding the number of lessons taught this year so that we have a clear and accurate record for each child. Once we have gathered this information we will be able to put processes in place to reimburse parents/carers for missed lessons. We thank you for your patience in this matter.
We will continue to take advice from the Government and our partner departments in B&NES Council and will re-start lessons as soon as we are advised that we can.
Please be aware there is currently no date for lessons to re-start.
Can my child continue to have lessons virtually/via the internet?
We are now taking bookings for instrumental lessons that can take place via a safe online portal that has been especially set up for instrumental teaching and learning. If your child has been receiving instrumental lessons in terms 3 and 4, you can register your interest via the following link:
Can my child continue to have lessons if they are attending school?
They will not be able to receive face-to-face lessons in school. With the schools agreement, you may be able to receive an online lesson whilst at school. Please register your interest in this via the following link:
Please be assured, the Music Service team is working extremely hard to find to find solutions to the many issues caused by the COVID-19 crisis. We will update this page with any updates as we have them.
