Safeguarding for Online Music Lessons
Safeguarding is vitally important when taking lessons online.
Please see a summary of the Musicians Union advice for online music lessons below:
Video calling is to be used for music lessons only and not for other contact e.g. sharing photos or general messaging.
Parents should set up a profile on behalf of their children and make sure that the profile is restricted so that students can only receive calls from known contacts.
Students should not wear excessively informal clothing and should not present against a messy background.
The teacher may terminate the call if any of the above guidelines are not followed.
