COVID-19 update

Dear Students’/Parents

To ensure the health and safety of our students and staff, as of the week commencing Monday 23rd March Newcastle Conservatorium will stop all on-sight lessons for the forseeable future. However to allow your musical studies to continue, as of next week 80% of our Community Music lessons will move online, with the exceptions of ECM and Creative Play students who will receive credits.

Please find the below snapshot of Conservatorium activities:

  • The Conservatorium will continue offer single study lessons via Zoom only
  • The Conservatorium will move ensembles/choirs to Zoom check-in sessions. These new sessions will be half the price; therefore, if you have already paid this terms ensemble/choir fee, you’ll be credited – for next term.
  • Our Conservatorium schools’ program will operate under each school’s direction; however, if the school is closed, paired lessons will move to an online setting.
  • Finally, our staff are currently developing new online programs for Term Two; therefore, we’ll keep you posted.

Please note, we are entirely flexible during this period. We are also aware that moving online might not work for everyone due to internet restrictions. Your teacher(s) will contact you over the weekend or early next week to confirm your continuation plan.

Finally, please know, UON is committed to keeping our students musically active over the next few months; and to continue the joyful activity of music-making in these challenging times.
