Music Instruction Update April 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

I hope you have all had a restful holiday.  Music Instructors are looking forward to seeing pupils face to face this term.  I hope pupils are equally as excited!  Please read the following information regarding music lessons from next week:

Strings / Guitar / Percussion / Drum Kit

Lessons for the above instruments will take place in school.  Timetables will be posted on pupils’ Teams pages.

Woodwind / Brass / Voice

Lessons for these instruments will take place in school.  Pupils is S4, S5 & S6 taking NQ Music at National 5, Higher or Advanced Higher level will receive their lessons in the Seminar Room (Room C10).  All other pupils will receive their lessons in the gazebos, which are situated in the outdoor courtyard near to the Learning Zone.  For the first week, pupils should wait outside the Learning Zone where their instructor will meet them.  In the event of bad weather, lessons will take place indoors in a practice room.  Timetabling for these lessons has been extremely challenging so please bear with me if there are any teething problems.   Timetables will be posted on pupils’ Teams pages.

Face coverings should be worn by pupils at all times, apart from when singing or when blowing down instruments.  Pupils should continue to observe 2 metre distancing from instructors.

I hope that things run smoothly in the coming weeks and that the sun continues to shine!

Best wishes,

Andrew Langford

Principal Music Instructor
