Teaching Update August 2020

August 17, 2020

Since my last update, I would firstly like to say a personal thank you to all of the students, parents/guardians who have supported me by continuing lessons online. Around 80% transferred online, which is pretty good going!

 

Looking at the feedback from students, parents/guardians everyone seems quite happy with this arrangement, including feedback & set work sent from myself.

 

 

Return to face to face lessons

 

After continued consultations regarding face to face tuition in a private setting with my MP Gerald Jones, MS Dawn Bowden, CCBC business & development teams & lastly my ongoing meetings with the Wales & South West England Regional Committee I am a member of.

 

It looks like the date I will be returning to face to face teaching is still undetermined at this time sadly.

 

This will of course be subject to Central, Welsh & Local government guidelines, rules, laws that are in effect at that time & advice from the Musicians Union also.

 

Please note

You are completely free to continue to receive lessons online if you prefer, for any reason. I will be happy to accommodate.

 

Lessons taking place at The Practice Pad will temporarily be taking place at my studio or continuing online when resumed.

 

A stringent risk assessment is currently being made to implement any & all changes, modifications & safety precautions needed. Once this is complete you will receive a full version of this for your records before lessons are resumed.

 

 

Some Implemented Changes

 

The use of disinfectants between students lessons.

 

Applying PPE for students, teacher & parents/guardians.

 

The use of screens.

 

Different sitting positions for students, teacher & parents/guardians.

 

The use of more online/interactive systems for feedback & assigned work.

 

Full use of contactless & direct debit payments instead of cash.

 

 

Other News

 

 

Videos/Articles

 

During lockdown I have released numerous articles, videos & musical collaborations that may interest students & parents/guardians. Most are bass & guitar orientated & I am receiving great feedback & ideas from fellow musicians & students 

 

You can see them all on my website here

 

 

Giftcards

 

Giftcards are now also available via my payment provider SumUp as well as printed/e-vouchers already available.

 

The Sumup cards are available here

 

 

Defence Discount Service 

I am now signed up with the Defence Discount Service!

 

This offers currently serving, reserve & retired Officers & NCO's of the British Army, Royal Air Force & Royal Navy (including Royal Marines) discounted lesson prices.

 

These discounts are available via defencediscountservice.co.uk or via my website.

 

 

 

I've been meaning to set this up for a while as I receive discounts myself for many retailers/services using this scheme due to my former full time & current part time work as a Royal Naval officer.

 

 

Correspondence

 

Here is some lovely correspondence I have received from students, parents/guardians during lockdown. Thank you so much & I'm glad you're all doing so well & practicing as much as you all do!
