NOTES FOR GUIDANCE
MU members are insured personally in respect of legal liability that may arise following injury or damage to members of the public. The limit of this indemnity is £10m. This policy is only operative whilst the individual registered member is performing, rehearsing, or auditioning either solo or part of a group, band or orchestra and/or whilst teaching at the member’s own home, the Student’s own home or in a public place including transit to and from.
It is important to note that whilst the Teacher will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure the Student makes satisfactory progress, this cannot be guaranteed. In particular, careful regular practice as advised by the Teacher is a prerequisite of success on any musical instrument or in any musical endeavour.
