COVID 19 Update 

We are open 

Courtyard Music is pleased to announce that we have re-opened. 

We have put in place all Covid 19 defences such as sneeze screens in all tuition rooms & the counter & you will be asked to sanitize on entering the shop. We have also installed a new water heater so people & staff can wash their hands regularly. 

To start with, our tutors will carry on with Zoom / Skype lessons for students having them at present, meaning we can stagger the one to one lesson’s making social distancing an easy task to achieve. As much as it goes against all that is Courtyard Music, we would ask parents to wait outside the shop for their children. We will not be able to offer drinks & would ask people to leave coats etc in their cars. 

This will give a strange feeling to start with but as time goes on, all being well, we can return to being the vibrant sociable space that we were all used to. 

If anyone wants to contact us to discuss anything or feels uncomfortable coming back in the near future, please be assured we are here to help & totally understand any fears you may have.

Many thanks & stay safe.
