Dear Students, Parents, & Guardians,
Welcome to a New Musical Year!!
Studying Music is one way to improve the quality of your life.
This is a new year with new challenges! You have chosen one of your challenges (studying music!) and we will soon embark on our musical studies and adventures!
This year, we have the added challenges of COVID:
For in person lessons:
-Lessons will be preceded by hand washing or sanitizing and followed by hand washing or sanitizing (students provide their preferred sanitizer, the Studio provides soap and water in the bathroom sink).
-Students are asked to avoid touching their faces as much as possible.
-We will keep our distance to protect everyone.
-Anyone wishing to wear a mask is welcome to do so.
-Anyone wishing me to wear a mask is welcome to ask me to do so & I will.
-Voice students will face slightly away from me so that we are not singing directly at each other. -As usual, if a student is ill in any way, they are asked to not attend their lesson to help protect the health of the instructor and all the other students studying in the Studio.
-Similarly, if a student knows that they have been exposed to illness, they are asked to please not attend in person – Skype, Zoom, and/or speaker phone is an option in cases like this and must be set up as ahead of time as possible.
-Lessons are scheduled to accommodate a 5 minute break between students:
-this will give me a chance to wipe things down and sterilize door knobs
-this will also prevent students having to pass each other in the porch on their way in or out of the Studio.
-to help with this, Please do not arrive earlier than 2 to 3 minutes before your lesson time.
Students always have the option of lessons on Skype or Zoom if that is their preferred method of studying (or a combination of online lessons and in person lessons).
Please review the Studio Policies before lessons begin.
