Anti-bacterial hand gel will be provided for customers and staff. Before entering the teaching rooms, you will be required to use the provided anti-bacterial hand gel thoroughly
Temperature checks as you enter the building
Staggered lesson times. To prevent students arriving at the same time, lessons will have staggered start times (eg 3.25pm 3.30pm 3.35pm 3.40pm). This will prevent a crossover of people coming in and out of the rooms together.
During your lessons
We ask that all adult students come in on their own. (with the exception of carers)
Children may be accompanied by guardian or parent from the same household.
2 metre clear Perspex screens in all rooms.
These will create a barrier between you and the team, similar to the ones you see at the supermarket.
All students and visitors (over the age of 5) and teachers will be required to wear either a face shield or a face mask when in the school.
We would ask that you bring your own whenever possible, but we will have a limited supply of PPE available for students to purchase :face shields for singing students @ £1, disposable face masks for all other students and their guardians @ 50p.
Markings on the floor to help adhere to social distance guidelines
After your lesson
Please check that the exit is clear before leaving the building
There will be limited seating available for people to sit and wait
Many students choose to arrive early and wait in the reception area, please only arrive 2-3 minutes before your lesson start time.
There is a clear Perspex screen on the Ecclesfield reception desk these will create a barrier between you and the team, similar to the ones you see at the supermarket.
We will have a virtual reception at Broomhill. Due to space restrictions, we won’t have a receptionist at our Broomhilll branch. We will have our Ecclesfield receptionist on hand via an online link so you can speak to them should you need to, don’t forget to say hello to them when you come in.
Reception will book lessons via card payments only. We will not be accepting cash at this time
Instruments & sheet music
Microphones will not be used
Drum students will need to bring their own sticks
Guitar, ukulele, bass students will need to bring their own instruments
If you have an instrument that needs retuning or restringing, please contact us to arrange a time that this can be dropped off at the school the day before your lesson. This can then be done prior to your lesson taking place and sanitised ready for you to use.
We ask that you bring with you own sheet music at this time we will not be able to provide resources or handwritten notes. All teaching notes will be emailed to you for use at home
Online lessons will still be available if you prefer
Our online lessons to the zoom platform
Cleaning & hygiene
Our enhanced cleaning guidance has been provided by Crystal Clean Services ltd.
We will disinfect all common touch points following the arrival and departure of all students
Pianos, keyboards and drum kits will be sanitised in between each lesson
Deep cleans will take place at the beginning and the end of each teaching day
Although the toilets will be open, we would ask that wherever possible the use is limited to the Harmony team only. Of course, if you need to use the toilet you may do so, but please check with reception to ensure that it is free as only one person at any one time can use the facilities.
Information and updates are still changing, so we know that we may well have to change this as time goes on and we will keep you up to date with anything new as and when it happens.
We hope that these measures will make physical lessons as safe as possible and we would like to say thank you for your cooperation.

Covid-19 Tips & Advice
Download our tips and advice for staying safe during your music lessons. Remember please do not come in to the school if you have received a positive Covid test result or have any Covid symptoms
I booked my son on to a summer holiday deal and by chance decided to freshen up my music skills to. Teddy was learning drums and is only 5 years old: the teachers are patient, knowledgeable and talented. Would definitely recommend so much so I have bought my niece a voucher for a music lesson to. I went in with the intention of brushing up on the ukulele & have a new found confidence in my ability.
Loved this place!
AMAZING music school Aubrey and Abby as well as the other staff were always so polite, always a warm welcome to anyone who walks through the door! miss this place so much,
Would definitely recommend to anyone of any age looking to learn something new or to improve their talents 🙂
I had my first lesson with James today he was very patient and didn’t laugh when a 45 yr old was playing when the saints go marching in!
