Securing your data

Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, we would ask that anyone under the age of 18 interested in online projects, proceed with parental or guardian's approval. In most cases communication relating to musical projects/teaching will be conducted through a parental email address or educational institution email address, unless there is a specific request by the parent or guardian to use the child's email address for technical reasons. In such cases it is normal practise to copy all communication to the parent/guardian email address.
