Create an account and sign-up to start learning right away. If you are a parent and would like your child to have lessons at school you can check our live School Status Tracker (scroll down for the link) to see if your child’s school is able to safely facilitated in-person lessons, otherwise lessons will take place online at home whilst we make the necessary arrangements. (Autumn Term teaching starts w/c 21st September).
‘I AM ONLY INTERESTED IN IN-PERSON LESSONS’ (WAITING LIST)
If you are only interested in in-person lessons, sign-up to our waiting list. For lessons in schools, delivery is subject to availability of a Covid-secure teaching space at your child’s school. It may take us a little while to make these arrangements with your child’s school and in some settings it may not be possible to fulfil in-person teaching until after a Covid vaccine is found. All in-person lessons are subject to being transitioned online in the event of local lockdown, school closure or tutor/pupil self-isolation.
Unlocking Music In Merton
Following the full opening of schools and in-line current government guidance, Merton Music Foundation will begin to resume in-person teaching in Merton schools this term (September 2020).
It is vital that this is conducted safely, so we are working closely with your child’s school to ensure that all the necessary measures are in place. Whilst we are making these arrangements, some lessons will continue to be delivered online for the time being. Lessons at our Crown Lane Studio Percussion School will resume in-person in September 2020, however lessons at our Music Centre in Harris Academy, Morden will remain online until at least half-term (November).
We will also continue to operate our ‘Online Music School’ video lessons via Zoom, rated 4.5 stars out of 5 by parents/guardians for ‘Overall Quality of Instrumental E-Lessons’. Sign up for a trial lesson – if you don’t think online learning is right for your child, you won’t be charged.
Find Out More About How We Plan to Return to In-Person Teaching
MMF is committed to ensuring the safety of our learning community. The process for returning to in-person teaching is complex and unique to the circumstances in each school. Priority will be given to existing e-pupils with a waiting list system in place for all other pupils to help us deal with the anticipated limited availability of teaching spaces.
Prices below are for lessons online and in Merton schools. Fees are payable termly via invoice, prices displayed are for 10 lessons.
Please note that paired lessons online are subject to availability. In-school shared lessons will only be possible within a ‘bubble’, typically this will mean with a pupil from your child’s class or year group.
Prices for lessons that take place at our Music Centre are usually a little higher because we rent the space. Whilst your child’s lessons remain online, you will benefit from our lower school-lesson prices.
It is possible to hire an instrument from us, however we are currently running a reduced service due to Covid-19. If you indicate that you would like to hire an instrument from us, we will contact you to arrange safe collection.
