12th of July 2021

I am glad to say that I am back onsite teaching face to face, however due to the coronavirus still present and following the government guidelines the following has to be implemented to keep my students / parents and myself safe during the strange times we now live in.

Protect Yourself

Please wear a face covering

The following guidelines are implemented

Covid Guidlines Update – 12/07/2021

Seating arrangements in your lesson

There will be a 2 meter seating distance between myself and all students taking lessons, there is also a screen between myself and the student.

only the student is allowed in the lesson room other than dropping off or collection by the parent.

Face Covering

Due to Tamworth been one of the top five places in the UK with rising covid 19 cases, I still require students from the age of 11 upwards to wear a face covering in the lesson room.

Although face covering are to be your own choice, L. A. Guitar School still require students to wear a face covering .

As the room is an enclosed space and a small area, you will still be expected to wear a face covering.

Children under the age of 11 are not needed to wear a face covering in the lesson room, only students above the age of 11.

I the tutor will continue to wear a face covering during face to face lessons.

Parents can wait for there child while they are having there lesson, however, the parent or gradian must be wearing the appropriate PPE (face covering) while they are waiting in the reception or any communal area. .

Do You Have The Below Symptoms

  • Continuous cough
  • Continuous sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Temperature
  • RunnyNose

Should you experience symptoms such as.

Or feel generally unwell

Get a test and cancel your lesson.If your test is positive please rebook after you isolation period has expired.

If you’ve been exposed or been asked to isolate due to been near someone who has tested positive for the virus please cancel your lesson.

You will not be charged should you need to cancel for any of the above.

Arrival at your lesson

Call the intercom outside the building and you will then be let in to the premises, but you must be wearing a face covering unless you are under the age of 11.

Once in the building please use the code provided after booking your lesson to access the reception, once you are through the security door there is an automatic sanitizing machine to sterilize your hands after using the keypad.

Lesson Room

In the lesson room you will also find a sanitizing machine to sterilize your hands while in your lesson and as you leave.


Please allow a little time for the tutor to wipe down any chairs and door handles before you are allowed to enter the lesson room.


We currently are only taking card payments, we have a contactless card reader in the lesson room for you to pay as you leave.

For those distance learning you will be sent a payment link through whatsApp, here you can pay for your lesson through our secure checkout payment facility.

Hiring of instruments

Unfortunately I can not let any students use any instruments that the school owns, you must bring your own instrument to your lesson. NO instrument NO lesson.

All the above has been implemented to safe guard all my students and myself. I have received both my vaccinations, however, I can still contract the virus. I have regular rapid flow test twice a week, and I will continue to do so until the situation improves.

Thank you for taking the time to read my guidelines, and I will look forward to teaching you.

Please keep checking back to this page, should future events change.

Kindest Regards
