Welcome to the 'piano truck'
where a music teacher is offering mobile lessons
Location: Hong Kong
on student's doorsteps
despite schools being shut
(SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese) 27-YEAR-OLD EVAN KAM, CURRICULUM OFFICER AT MING'S PIANO, SAYING:
''We are diligent in cleaning the truck. Every time you step on it, we repeat certain steps. For example, we have to clean the piano, because there might be dust and germs while driving, or because of the last student who used the piano. We must ensure that the surface of the piano is clean. When the student arrives I will provide hand sanitizer for them to apply and clean their hands.''
Kam's music school lost two-thirds of its business
but the piano truck has brought back students
and offers parents a break
(SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese) SOPHIA'S MOTHER, WENDY YEUNG, SAYING:
"Parents have been spending every minute with our children. It's not good to nag them all the time but we also don't know what to do with them. I was also afraid to let them out. I feel very depressed myself, not to mention my children. I think my kids also feel depressed."
