Update on Music Tuition March 8th 2021
The School have decided that face to face music tuition will now start during the Summer term, week beginning the 19th April. Until then Severn Arts will continue to provide online tutoring to the parents who have requested it already for their child/ren, see information below.
If you have not signed up to online tutoring but wish to do so, please let me know in the school office and I can arrange this for you.
Please note that from 8th March, as tutors will also be conducting face to face tuition in the schools that have requested it, SevernArts seem to think that online tutoring may be conducted out of school hours.
Please let me know if you would like any further information or if you would like to sign your child up to online music tuition before face to face starts.
Dear Head Teacher, Head of Music, Music Coordinator,
In light of the government announcement last Monday evening that all schools must close to pupils other than those of keyworkers and vulnerable pupils, I would like to update you on Severn Arts position over the coming weeks.
In order to maintain continuity for your instrumental students during this period of school closure, we are pleased to be able to offer the option of live online weekly lessons. If you would like your students to access online lessons please fill in the attached spreadsheet and return to severnarts and we will set up the lessons directly with the parents/carers as soon as possible. Please make your parents/carers aware that their information will be shared with Severn Arts. I attach the Severn Arts guidelines for online lessons.
Please let us know if there is any other support that would be helpful for you and your students at this time.
Director of Learning
If you wish to sign your child up to music tuition, please read the letter below regarding terms & conditions of Severn Arts, costings and instruments etc. and then contact the school office on email@example.com.
Drum tuition November 2020
Your child had their drum lesson today and I've been informed by their tutor, Mr Randle, that they will need to bring in their own drum sticks from next week due to Covid measures. They will not be allowed to share drum sticks.
The tutor has advised that for Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 children they will need to purchase drum sticks at size 5A and the younger children, Years 1 & 2 a size 7A should be suitable.
He recommended the brand 'Nova' and said that these are reasonably cheap but are good quality and can be purchased off Amazon.
If you need any further information or guidance, please let me know and I will speak with Severn Arts
