Keeping Summer Term Saturday Your YMM Day!

Keeping Summer Term Saturday Your YMM Day!

28 March 2020

Dear YMM parent/carer/student,

We hope you’re gradually adjusting to all the changes everyone is going through at the moment. It’s been a great shock to us all but it’s wonderful to see how everyone is pulling together, helping neighbours, friends and those in need.

As you know, at YMM we have managed the first stage of running our entire music school off-site by moving to a ‘musical care package’ of emailed lessons for the last two weeks of term. You’ll appreciate all the work that went into providing bespoke packages for every student and we are so very proud of the way our tutors stepped up and delighted with how well the lessons have been received!

Plans for the Summer Term

Every music provider is facing the same challenges as YMM just now. And so, in line with the rest of the industry and after extensive planning, we will be delivering your usual lessons and groups via your laptop or computer using Zoom. Zoom is free for parents and tutors and very straightforward to use. For more information on Zoom please go to “News” on our website.

E-lessons will support your child to continue to make musical progress, provide a sense of structure during this period of uncertainty and help to protect the livelihood of your YMM tutor.

There will be no changes to your usual lesson times, unless specifically communicated.

There will be no changes to the fees, unless specifically communicated, and we will send invoices on April 18th. As anyone who has moved to working from home will already appreciate, tutors’ prep time is the same if not rather more as they adapt material to deliver via a new medium.

What to do now:

Please fill out the Online Code of Conduct.

We really hope that you will go on supporting YMM and our tutors and ensure that, as a charity entirely dependent on your fees to exist, we are still here the moment the all-clear is given, and we can return to La Sainte Union for some major musical celebrations!

While we get through this tough time together, we will do all we can to help you keep Saturday your YMM day. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for news of live online events and other musical inspirations, including today’s Facebook Live Cafe Concert 10.45am.

With very best wishes from us all,

The YMM Team.
