FYI here is @FullFact 's debunking of the "first safe country" myth:
Received an email from school confirming that peripatetic music lessons cannot start in September. That affects approximately 20 freelance specialist instrumental teachers, including me. I imagine other schools are sending similar emails to their peripatetic staff.
@SophiaGrene It's the worst. Social distancing is 3m and we obviously can't use masks, so teaching in a small practice room with poor ventilation is a non-starter. I can't even teach privately at the moment. Room isn't big enough.
You did some teaching as a doctoral candidate at Cambridge, and some teaching as a Fulbright Scholar at Harvard. But you have never held a university teaching post or done any significant academic research. You didn't even complete your doctorate. Universities are not schools.
