Message from EA:
Further to our correspondence on 8th March 2021 outlining EA Music Service plans to resume face to face tuition after the Easter break, we have been instructed by the Public Health Agency (as of Tuesday 30th March) to delay the resumption of EA Music Service delivery in schools and music centres which was due to recommence on the week beginning Monday 12th April 2021.
This decision has been based on emerging data regarding the new COVID variant. This will be reviewed by the PHA on a weekly basis and we will update schools accordingly.
We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience caused and understand the disappointment this announcement brings to children and young people, MS staff and schools.
Music Service staff will liaise with individual schools about possible online provision, as an interim measure, when they return after the Easter holidays.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact your local Music Service office below.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
Interim Head of Music Service
