During school closures as a result of COVID-19 we are going on-line!
Update: 1st May 2020.
We're delighted to announce that the LMS DigiTeach application portal is now live! This second wave of application follows the unprecedented response from the first wave launched on Friday 20th March! Over 600 pupils are now receiving the 'fully subsidised' offer on a weekly basis.
Applications are open to those whose instrumental tutor appears on the drop down list below. If your tutor is not listed, it means that they are not available for LMS DigiTeach, or have reached capacity already. Most LMS tutors only have a small amount of capacity and lessons will be offered on a first come first served basis. Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from private pupils.
If you are not able to obtain a lesson slot, LMS are pleased to offer an opportunity for you to receive direct feedback on a piece you are currently working on. Simply head over to the LMSDigiTeach Direct Feedback page, where you can upload your playing, and receive some feedback from one of our tutors. This is also free, and there is currently no limit to how many pieces you can upload (but you might want to limit it!).
If your son/daughter has been receiving lessons at school from an LMS tutor, your online lessons will be fully subsidised. Please complete the form below and await an email from the music service.
New pupils to LMS will NOT be accepted at this time.
If the pupil is in primary school, it may be wise to have an adult (parent/guardian) in the room to help with any issues, at least at the start.
As part of Lincolnshire County Council, LMS takes safeguarding extremely seriously. All our tutors have a relevant DBS/CRB check, and receive up to date safeguarding training on an annual basis. The teacher would normally take reasonable steps to ensure that the pupil is safe within their teaching environment and this situation is no different. We do however, ask that you ensure that your child is safe in their environment for the duration of the lesson, with minimal disturbances, and with an adult present in the house at all times. Lessons should take place in an appropriate space, i.e, not a bedroom.PLEASE READ THE PARENT/GUARDIAN GUIDE TO ONLINE LESSONS HERE
Our partner NYMAZ (North Yorkshire Music Action Zone) have produced new resources in the light of this outbreak, to assist in understanding digital distance learning , the challenges and opportunities that it creates. Please visit their website as part of your research. https://www.nymaz.org.uk
Whilst we will endeavour to meet demand for lessons, this will also depend on teacher availability. We will keep you informed of your request.
The Coronavirus scenario is changing on a daily basis and Lincolnshire Music Service will constantly be reviewing the services it offers during this time. As a result, Lincolnshire Music Service has the right to withdraw this offer at any time.
