For this to work we require the Parent/Guardian (unless age 18 or over) to provide the preferred Email Address for ZOOM invites/scheduling (This can be a family Email or one for the individual child/young person as long as it is provided by the Parent/Guardian) and a Facebook Username so we can invite them to join the ‘Ovation Student Forum’ Facebook Group (this can be the Parent/Guardian or the child/young person as long as it is provided by the Parent/Guardian). Please complete the form below.
Please read our Safeguarding & Procedure Policy (see below) prior to submitting this form. Please note that Online Music Sessions are a temporary measure and that our Standard Terms of Service (as agreed on initial registration) continues to apply. Please contact us if you have any questions.
