Online Lessons still available from 7th April 2020
My Drum School has been planning for a “lockdown” situation for some time. On 3rd April 2020, 4pm, PM Lee Hsien Loong announced that non-essential businesses need to close their premises with effect from 7th April 2020 (Tuesday) to 4th May 2020. Minister Chan Chun Sing also added, all businesses that can be operated from home, without commuting, will be allowed to continue fully. Therefore, we will still be able to provide Online Lessons from our homes.
By 6th April, all our Full-Time and Part-Time Educators’ residences will be equipped with drum equipment, practice pads, and essential teaching materials; they will continue conducting drums lessons online, from their own homes during working hours. In the past 1 week, we have conducted over 600 online lessons and they have been very successful.
Hence, MDS online lessons will continue as per usual. Our curriculum team is working hard to produce new drum education content every week; we already have a stockpile of syllabus for the months ahead! We will be introducing additional video content and audio files to complement these online lessons.
In an event we are not able to conduct lessons for any reasons, your outstanding make ups will be kept on record in your individual MDS Room accounts as well.
As a music education company, we have been hit badly with what is happening. It is a challenging season for all of us, and your continuation of lessons are important to us at a time like this. We continue to pay rental expenses for our 4 premises, utilities, Educator’s salaries and Headquarter staff salaries. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all of you for supporting the MDS Online Lessons initiative during this period.
Let’s endure these 4 weeks and support our Nation’s efforts.
We’ll see you at MDS Room.
