Update to Response on 24 March

Dear Students and Parents,

The Singapore Government has released new measures on 24th March 2020 to safeguard the well-being of Singapore, including suspending all enrichment classes by 26th (Thursday) March 2020, 23:59 hours.

This has, unfortunately, affected My Drum School operations at our four centres.

Hence, from 27th March to 30th April, as per the MOH advisory, My Drum School will suspend all physical classes but will continue to deliver quality drum education to our students via Online Lessons. Our Curriculum Team of 7 full-time staff have crafted an online syllabus package during this temporary arrangement.

Being at the forefront of technology since our founding, you will expect only the best from us. There will be two tracks available: students with drum kits at home and students without.

With the platforms of MDS Room (Student App) and Zoom (leader in modern enterprise video communications), we are very confident to be your reliable choice of drum education.

It is now imperative that you download the MDS Room App. Firstly, login details to Zoom are found in your student account (via MDS Room App). Secondly, your weekly homework and lesson progress entries will be recorded in the MDS Room app, and lastly, the downloadable online materials are all presented in the MDS Room app itself.

A step by step guide on how to download the MDS Room App can be found at https://mydrumschool.com/app/

If you need technical support to set up the Zoom or MDS Room App, please do not hesitate to call our support hotline at 8799 9779 (during weekdays) before your online lesson commences. Our educators will also be sending you links to guide you with the setup process.

MDS has, from the very beginning, taken this situation seriously and enforced precautionary measures; We have not had any reported cases of person(s) within the school premises infected with covid-19 thus far.

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank all our students for their confidence in the MDS brand all these years, and for the staff, who have been working tirelessly to make sure the school premises are clean, and that students are well and safe. Let’s cooperate with each other and stay a united drumming family as we battle this virus together, not only as a school, but as nation as well. In these difficult times, we will be stronger together!

 

Sincere wishes,
James Pang
