Welcome to Legato Music School



Since the recent announcements that all schools and now all public spaces should be closed, the only responsible action is to shut the music school immediately and until futher notice. My apologies to those who were hoping it wouldn’t come to this, but it’s impossible to ignore the scale and seriousness of what is happening.

This will also extend to home visits and in-person contact of any kind, as the country is clearly moving further into a state of physical distancing at this time.

Myself, Richard Cheetham and Jonathan Raynor are offering online lessons via Skype, Facetime, Facebook, Google or whichever platform you prefer. It’s clearly a compromise, but of course we’re all getting used to this in every area of our lives for the time being.


I must say a heartfelt thank you to all those who have shown tremendous support at this time, as clearly the future is unknown. With some positive thinking, continuing practise at home and hopefully some online lessons and staying in touch, I’m sure we can get back to normal (perhaps even stronger than before) eventually.

With best wishes at this testing time,

Simon Halliday
