DIM Update - Term 2, Week 5

We Miss You!


Dear Parents & Students,


DIM Return to Schools:

While most schools have now returned to full time classroom lessonsDIM is committed to running all term 2 lessons online as part of our DIM Connect program. We will NOT be resuming our music lessons and rehearsals on site in schools until permitted to do so. We are hopeful of a term 3 return, and are currently working on creating super safe and hygienic teaching environments so that everyone can return to music with confidence.


DIM Office Re-Opening:

We are excited to be re-opening our DIM office next week. Our admin staff have been busy replying to emails from home over the past few months, but from next week, we'll be back on the phones and ready to take your calls!

  • Open from Wednesday 3rd June

  • Monday - Friday (9.30am - 4.30pm)

  • Instrument returns & repairs by appointment only (please call/email prior to arrange a day/time)

  • Covid-safe guidelines will be in place, including the quarantine of returned instruments (this means a 2 week delay in the processing of these instruments)


How you can prepare for the return to lessons:

We are carefully planning our return to schools so that we can cater for all of our students upon our return, especially our young beginners who have had such a major disruption in just their first term of playing. There are some steps you can take at home, right now, to get back into the swing of things so that you're all ready to go when we're back to 'normal' at school.

  • If you  haven't picked up your instrument in a while, now is a great time to start - it will make your transition back into face to face lessons so much easier.   

  • You'll need to remind your brain and your fingers to communicate again - and this can be tricky, but if you get back into a simple routine now, you'll have plenty of time to get back into it - be patient with yourself and start slow!

  • It's not too late to join DIM Connect. If you'd like to join in the online zoom fun with other DIM students, get in touch and we can help get you sorted.

DIM Connect Update:

Our DIM Connect kids have been playing some awesome music together during their weekly rehearsals and lessons. It's been so wonderful to see some great new musical friendships form as our students meet like minded young musicians from other schools - an awesome extra benefit for everyone!


DIM Team Band:

Our DIM Team got together at the end of term 1 (with social distancing in place of course!), and recorded some awesome performances - after all playing music is at the heart of what we do! We hope you can enjoy this performance of 'Take the A Train'  you can check out our other videos on our DIM YouTube Channel
