Learning In-School

Learn In a Merton School

We teach one-to-one, paired and small group lessons during the school day in a wide range of schools throughout Merton. Your child will be guided by one of our highly skilled, specialist tutors to enable them to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to make outstanding progress on their instrument and develop a life-long passion for music.

We are delivering in-person lessons in over 70% of the schools in which we normally teach. All lessons are subject to strict COVID safety protocols.

Where lessons can't be taught in-person, we offer online lessons instead.

We are working closely with schools and have implemented a range of hygiene and distancing protocols to ensure the safety of our tutors and pupils.

If you are only interested in in-person lessons, please tell us this in the 'Notes' during the sign-up process. It may be necessary for your child to be put on to our Waiting List.

It may take us a little while to make in-person teaching arrangements with some schools it may not be possible to fulfil in-person teaching in some settings until social distancing restrictions are relaxed. 

All in-person lessons are subject to being transitioned online in the event of local lockdown, school closure or tutor/pupil self-isolation.

Learning at a Music Centre

MMF Music Centres

We operate Music Centres across the borough, where pupils can participate in 1-1 instrumental lessons with one of our specialist tutors out of school hours.

We also run a range of choirs and ensembles open to members of our South Wimbledon based Music Centre. Music is best when we make it together! By joining one of our groups, your child will develop their musicianship and ensemble performing in a safe and welcoming environment.

Staying Safe, Together.

In person lessons take place in a COVID-safe room with ventilation and enough space for your child and their tutor to maintain a social distance of 2 metres at all times. Our tutors participate in voluntary twice weekly rapid Lateral Flow Device (LFD) self-testing and adhere to all Government and school rules regarding hygiene and mask wearing.

Our tutors complete a thorough risk assessment, based on our template, and ensure that enhanced physical and respiratory hygiene processes are adhered to at all times.

Your child will be asked to wash or sanitise their hands before and after every lesson and to only bring the equipment that they need with them to their lesson. There may also be additional specific measures that your child and their tutor need to take, depending on the nature of the instrument your child is learning with us.

See our COVID-safe lesson guide and risk assessment templates here. 

“Lessons have been amazing and my son has remained motivated and excited to learn and practice. It’s been wonderful to hear bits of the lessons and how positive and encouraging (my son’s tutor) is.”

Parent of an MMF pupil.
