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

Private Tuition

As of 19:00 22/03/20

To be transparent, as of the date/time above I have 5 students in self isolation.

In regards to the government advice (national & local) towards the COVID-19 outbreak lessons available at your normal times/days via Skype/online video ONLY

Although the studio is cleaned & disinfected regularly. For the safety of myself, family, students & dependents. There will be no lessons taking place in person.

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 at here where a lesson information pack available to be downloaded.

Skype/online video lessons will be charged as usual & at the same rate. Some students who do not have access to Skype/online video or who have elected to postpone lessons have kindly offered to continue to pay fully or at a reduced rate to help my business continue financially.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience to discuss the new arrangements if needed.

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 pending amendments to allowances for self employed persons.

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

This applies to lessons undertaken at The Practice Pad. I will still be paying the room rental there during this time.

Live Performance & Session Work

As of 19:00 22/03/20

As of the date/time above all live performances have been cancelled for the foreseeable.

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

I am now only available for remote session work.

I am still 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.
