A Statement Regarding COVID-19 In Relation to Private Tuition & Live Performances

March 16, 2020



Private Tuition as of 09:00am 17/03/20 


To be transparent, as of the date/time above I have 3 students in self isolation.


In regards to the governments advice towards the COVID-19 outbreak lessons are still scheduled & will not be postponed but a move towards Skype/Online video is preferred. 


I already teach multiple students via Skype/Online video daily so the resources & hardware are already in place. Information regarding Skype/Online video lessons can be found here where a lesson information pack available to be downloaded.


Following the current advice/guidelines from the government with common sense & due care is taken I see no need or want to postpone lessons for the following reasons - 


This is my business, my job & my livelihood.


If lessons are stopped/postponed or not paid for, as a self employed person, my business will collapse as I have no access to income protection or statutory sick pay at this time.


I am in daily contact with my MP, AM & The Musicians Union & all information received will be passed forward. 



Live Performance & Session Work as of 09:00am 17/03/20 


As of the date/time above I now have 8 gigs/shows that have been cancelled Including a 3 day tour. 


I understand & fully accept the reason for them being cancelled/postponed. 


Performing live in theatres, venues, festivals, pits & studios provides the majority of my income.


I will be honouring the gigs/shows that are booked unless instructed by a higher authority/government to stop.


 I am still available for live/session work, as music events have not officially been stopped by the government.


I am in daily contact with my MP, AM & The Musicians Union & all information received will be passed forward. 


In the meantime, from a distance I am able to provide the following which are all listed here


Remote Lessons via Skype/Online Video 


Remote Recording Sessions






And more


From a personal view it would be very beneficial if all outstanding/overdue invoices & fees are paid as soon as possible.


Also to note. I have an underlying health condition & have dependents/close family who also have underlying health conditions. This will take precedence in all decisions being made.


I will be updating this post & contacting clients personally with any updates.
