An update on lessons during COVID-19

An important note to all of our valued students:

The COVID-19 pandemic has caught all of us rather suddenly it seems.

With social distancing measures continuing to escalate, we have made the difficult decision to call an early end to Term 1, and we will not be conducting any more face-to-face, in-studio lessons for the foreseeable future. For all of our Stringz Guitar Studio one-on-one students, lessons for the next few weeks are cancelled, and we will be resuming in Term 2 with lessons by Skype (and possibly other on-line video messaging platforms).

We will be extremely busy over the next two weeks, as well as over the Easter break getting our systems and procedures right. We want to ensure that our students still receive the same high quality, friendly and fun learning interaction that they’ve come to expect from our studio lessons. For all of our Stringz Guitar Kidz class students, at schools and at our studio on Saturdays, week 9 and 10 of term are cancelled, and we will be offering individualised, private YouTube lesson links from week 1 of term 2 onwards!

We will honour any outstanding lesson credits in term two (including the lessons cancelled in week 9 and 10 of term 1). We are also pleased to announce, we will be offering our loyal student base a discount on all lessons, scaling back the one-on-one price to $35 for a half hour Skype lesson, and the group class price to $12 per for a group YouTube lesson link, and this discount will apply for the duration of the COVID-19 disruptions. We will be sending more information in the coming days about Skype lessons.

We view it as an imperative that we preserve, and if possible, magnify the “fun” element that have in our studio, face-to-face lessons. We all learn best when we feel included, important and when we are sharing a fun situation together.

One thing I do know – there will come a day when the measures we are all taking together as a community will pay off, and when we are able to once again get together, face-to-face, and make wonderful music. Stringz Guitar Studio intends to be there!

We thank our customers for their understanding and support during this difficult time for music tuition, and the arts at large. Stay well, stay positive, look after each other and look forward to resuming face-to-face lessons soon.

Wishing you good health
Paul, Mike and Wendy (and Bonnie…)
