Hi Parents, 

At this stage teachers will only be back in Summerland, Waitakere & Western Heights.  Kaurilands, Greenbay and Glenavon are holding off for the time being which is totally fair enough.

Please keep in touch, and do keep your children playing their instrument and enjoying the music they already know. Even going over old music or picking things out by ear is really fun and helps develop important Aural skills. 

Take care, and stay safe!
