‘Summer is not lost’, said An Taoiseach today. And there certainly is some hope in the air today as additional measures to reopen the country will come into force from this coming Monday.
And while it’s still difficult to see the end of the road as regards live music in pubs and theatres, it’s hopefully a step in the direction of that happening again.
A good friend of mine told me recently she had given up on planning – and I think she’s right. It’s hard to live anything other than week to week or day to day at the moment – things can and will change quickly.
But we are where we are, and as of Monday small groups of people are allowed to gather indoors as long as social distancing can be maintained. And so with that in mind it’s lovely to be able to say that a part of my business will be reopening, and I’ll be back teaching in-person lessons from Monday June 8. From a safe distance and taking all hand-washing and facial covering precautions.
The summer is usually full of holidays, trips away and summer camps, and in-person 1-1 teaching is not something regularly done at this time of year. But while summer may not be lost, there’s no doubt that it will be different, and so it will be nice to try something different here too.
So if you’re an existing student or subscriber, someone who wants to start back into lessons or someone who wants to start from scratch, you’re welcome. No commitment required – we’ll take it day to day and week to week – and you can come as often as suits you.
