COVID-19 Updates

Please note: In light of the recent announcements regarding Tees Valley entering into Tier 4, we unfortunately cannot run any face to face group music activities until further notice. We are reviewing our programme and will be offering alternative ‘COVID-proof’ music making opportunities for young people as soon as we can.

After nearly 10 months of our music sessions being either on hold or being led online (which is a challenge!) we are really looking forward to getting back to as close to normal as possible in 2021.

We have worked very hard on making sure our health and safety guidelines around returning to work with COVID-19 comply with government advice and all projects have a thorough risk assessment in place. To view our COVID safety guidelines click here.

Unfortunately we cannot operate a drop in system for our open access music groups as we previously did, and therefore we now have a digital and downloadable sign up form for all activities. Please fill in this form here if you would like to attend an open access group.

We have pulled together a summary of links to advice and guidance for self-employed musicians and teachers/leaders during the COVID-19 emergency. You may find these useful in terms of finding out what you are entitled to claim as a self- employed person during this time.

These websites are also useful for guidance on moving your practise online and signposting to training available.

We hope to hear from you via musinc@middlesbrough.gov.uk or any of our social media links if you have any queries or would like to get in touch.
