Gove: Tutors should be able to touch music pupils

Thank God someone has the sense to speak out about this.  Don’t get me wrong, I fully support children’s rights and welfare but there comes a time when parents need to be taken by the shoulders and given a good shake.

For a music teacher to be told they aren’t allowed to touch a child is like trying to teach a child math’s without talking.  Instruments are physical creations it takes your entire body to play one correctly.  Sometime you have to move a students hands into the right position or draw attention to raised shoulders or or or the list goes on.

Next we’ll all have to wear face masks incase we breathe germs onto them in our small practice room.  Oh no… I’ve just given someone an idea…
