What to expect in a our Covid-friendly classes

Many of you will have enjoyed coming to Tin Pan Annie Music classes (or heard about them). New ‘COVID-Safe’ classes have to be a little different for a while.

All the great songs, music, and quality are here but there are some things we can’t do at the moment, like high fives, dancing together holding hands, choosing a friend to ’Row the Boat’ with or huddling together next to the teacher for story time.

But we want to give you the best experience from your music class so we will encourage parents and carers to dance together with their children in their family groups sharing a real live music experience with each other.

On arrival the class will be preset with ‘Puddles’ for each attending family pod, spaced at least one metre apart. These ‘Puddles’ are wipe-clean floor mats for you and your little ones to camp on for the duration of the class. A face mask or visor must be worn by all adults whilst entering the venue, leaving the venue, or visiting the bathroom. When seated on your ‘puddle’, these may be removed.

 Each family pod will be provided with a sanitised Tin Pan ‘Bundle’ for use in the class. It will contain all the props and instruments you will need for the class, stickers and an activity sheet for you to take home. All props provided in the ‘Bundles’ will be left on your ‘Puddle’ at the end of each class to be sanitised and isolated.

As always, our classes are designed for your child to gain all the wonderful benefits of real live music. Speech and language develops, confidence grows and imagination soars! The class will include rhythm stick songs, action songs, silly scarves, dancing, clapping, singing along, and of course all the wonderful props who appear from Tin Pan Annie’s box – a different theme each week! Children can play percussion in Tin Pan Annie’s band before waving and singing goodbye to the props and Puddles.

Usually, we run age-specific classes and offer lots of options for different days and times. COVID restrictions mean we can only offer a few classes to choose from. So during these times we have decided to make all classes mixed-ages to give parents more options.

Tin Pan Harry will be wearing a clear face visor for the entire class, and sanitising gel and wipes will also be available for everyone.

Please see our full list of Covid-19 safety measures for more information.
