"The linked documents give much good advice and show useful statistics that lay out the advisory viral-mitigation distance between certain wind instruments within an ensemble setting. Our thanks go to Music Mark and others for producing such useful information at this time. "

Music Mark LogoAs stores re-open and schools gradually return their pupils to full-time education, we in the MI industry are not only concerned about the potential health implications of this return, but also the cultural loss of music performance and group activity. There are countless studies that show the incredible power of learning and playing a musical instrument. So, we all need to understand what the options are and the current scientific advice.

Therefore, we are pleased to point you toward the Music Mark charity, who lobby for and support high-quality music education for all children and young people.

> > > > Music Mark have issued three very useful guidance documents for those involved in Music Education and Performance.< < < < 

There are three documents available on the Music Mark website

They state that “[All these documents] are ‘live’ in that they will be reviewed as often as more research comes to light to make sure we are providing as clear and helpful guidance as we can.  There is a short, simple guide for schools (primarily aimed at helping head teachers and governors understand that musical learning can and must be part of the curriculum as pupils return to school), a more detailed guide for music providers (which school music teachers may also find useful), and a ‘literature review’.  This last document simply links to all the research we have found for those who want to go to the source material for more in-depth reading”.

Within these documents can be found useful statistics that show the advisory viral-mitigation distance between certain wind instrument types within an ensemble setting.

Our thanks go to Music Mark and others for producing such useful information at this time.
