Student Code of Conduct

MUSIC TCHR expects students to follow this Code of Practice in order to ensure that: they benefit from their learning experiences; they are mindful of the need for safeguarding procedures, and; that their behaviour is responsible and respectful at all times.

Be your best self

  • Students will act in a sensitive, considerate and responsible manner at all times. This includes both individual and group lessons.
  • Any verbal or physical conduct that demeans others, in particular relating to ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, age or political beliefs will not be tolerated.
  • Rules and Regulations

Get the most from your lessons

  • Give yourself time to log into your lesson.
  • You must use your MusicTCHR account for all course and lesson-related communications and access.
  • The use of personal email accounts is not permitted.
  • Do engage seriously with your learning – including doing any practice or assignments set by your teacher.
  • Have the right resources to hand, including any sheet music, instruments and accessories.

Be safe and responsible

  • Disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated.
  • You should be dressed appropriately for the lesson
  • Be in an environment that is quiet, safe and free from distractions.
  • Where possible, students should not join virtual sessions from their bedroom.

A few do’s and don’ts
