In-Person Lessons Update

March Update for Current and Future students of PTM.

As part of the latest government guidance there are changes taking place which will allow for indoor music tuition to take place on different dates in the coming months. The latest information is set out below as per guidance from ISM and MU.

For Students aged 17 and under:

From March 8th:

The Incorporated Society of Musicians states that teaching for children can take place indoors provided:

‘it is being used as part of their efforts to obtain a regulated qualification,* meet the entry requirements for an education institution (e.g. auditions), or to undertake exams and assessments’

(‘*Regulated qualifications include examinations by music examination boards (e.g. ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall and LCM). These organisations are on the government Register of Regulated Qualifications. LCM is regulated as part of the University of West London.’) ISM

As almost all students at PTM are working towards qualifications under the exam boards listed above, this will apply to the majority of students. There are however further situations in which teaching can also take place in the event that this does not apply. These include the following as set out by the Musicians Union and ISM, in which activities are:

  • ‘reasonably necessary to enable their parents and carers to work, search for work, undertake education or training, or attend a medical appointment or address a medical need, or attend a support group’ 
  • ‘being used by electively home educating parents as part of their arrangements for their child to receive a suitable full-time education’ (Musicians Union)

For Adult Students:

The current guidance suggests the ambition to allow for indoor activities to take place without restriction from April 12th. This page will be updated to reflect the latest news and guidance.
