CORONAVIRUS UPDATE FOR STUDENTS @ JDT MUSIC ACADEMY

LAST UPDATED 24 MARCH 2020

Good morning to our fantastic students and families,

We hope this email finds you safe and well. Many of you have contacted us over the weekend to find out what our current position is and we have spent many hours figuring out the best course of action! We're eager to keep as many of our music services going over the coming weeks and we know how important it will be to try and maintain some routine. The studio itself is now closed, but we aim to keep as much running online as possible. In order for this to happen, we'll require students to download the Zoom app on to a smart phone, tablet or laptop. It will also help if you have a pair of headphones to use although these aren't essential. Please see below for detailed information about each of our services and how to use Zoom. 

Instrumental and Vocal Lessons
For those of you that take private one-to-one lessons, we will be transferring all future lessons, from today, to our online system via Zoom. These will continue to run at your normal time and day. We will contact every student individually to ensure this is a viable option and to help with the set up. We also have drum-kits, ukuleles and guitars available to loan should you require them.

Arts Award
We will be assessing the requirements of our individual Arts Award students and contacting you directly to discuss your portfolios and deadlines.

RockavoX & MinivoX
From this week, we'll be running RockavoX and MinivoX via Zoom at the normal times!

Band Workshop
We have made the difficult decision to suspend the workshop until the studio reopens.

Musical Minds Dementia Choir
Sessions have been suspended until further notice. Fingers crossed, that won't be long!

 

Kit Fit
We'd like to continue Kit-Fit via Zoom if we have enough for a class! We've emailed participants separately about viability.

Music Makes Me
We have made the difficult decision to cancel all future Music Makes Me sessions until further notice.

In the meantime, we hope that we can continue to work together to deliver a quality service and maintain some level of normality in these difficult and ever changing times.

Take care, and we'll be in touch with you again very soon.
