We are currently working really hard to make the necessary arrangements for instrumental lessons to restart and are very hopeful that this can be within the next few weeks - keep an eye on the website's Music page (under 'Curriculum')! The good news is that you have already paid for these in advance - any Zoom lessons your child may have received from some of the tutors during the summer were free of charge and through their goodwill to keep some sort of provision going. We are also hoping to be able to start some new Year 4 instrumentalists off on their own musical journeys at some stage - again, keep an eye on the Music page! Thank you for your ongoing support with Manadon Vale's musical tradition!
If your child is a guitarist, please can you check that their guitar is at home and not still in the music room? If it is still there, please can they collect it! At the end of last term, there were 8 beautiful guitars unclaimed! From this term, no instruments can be left in the music room, due to us needing the full space for appropriately distanced instrumental lessons. Class teachers know that the children's instruments will need to be kept in their classrooms during the day of the lesson and taken home again that afternoon. If any of the guitars are still in there at the end of next week, I shall assume they are left by ex-pupils and offer them to the guitar teacher as spares/second-hand instruments. Many thanks for your assistance with this.
We are very excited about returning to some sort of music at Manadon, even if it won't be able to look exactly the same during the current restrictions.
