Due to the rapidly changing situation regarding coronavirus and to best protect the health and safety of all of our private tuition clients and part-time non – accredited learning students and staff, Riverside Music College has taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face instrument contact classes from today, Tuesday 17th March 2020. 

Additional provision will be in place to continue study from home where possible. 

We will issue guidance on how to continue studies during this time and tutorial information will be made available via our website, email and  online platforms

We understand that students undertaking instrument and vocal grading exams will be concerned about the impact that this may have on studies and progression. We'd like to emphasise that this situation is national and reassure students that we are speaking with external agencies moving forward.

Please keep up to date with any updates and information regarding the College and all tuition activities via our online channels – email, social media and website.  

The College is committed to limiting negative impact at this time and we are confident in our plans to ensure candidate progression where possible.

It is important that you continue to follow the advice provided by the Government and public health agencies during this time to keep yourself and others protected. This includes:  

  • Anyone who has symptoms of coronavirus, however mild, should stay at home and not leave their house for 7 days from when the symptoms started – regardless of whether you have travelled to affected areas or been in contact with someone who has the virus. 
  • If any member of your household is displaying symptoms, this period is extended to 14 days for all members of the household.
  • NHS Scotland recommends using good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene. Coughing and sneezing should be into tissues that are promptly disposed down the toilet. Hands should be washed more regularly than usual with soap and water or using an alcohol hand rub even if hands are visibly clean. 

We are aware that this is an anxious time for our students, particularly those already impacted by mental health difficulties.
