Reminders re: class schedule, arrivals & departures, and health precautions
Dear musicians and families,
I am so excited for us to make music together! I know we are going to have fun.
I am taking care to keep our facilities and classes as low-risk as possible with small, physically-distanced classes and equipment sanitizing before each student/class. Our ventilation system was completed updated just a few years ago and serviced earlier this month.
In-personclasses start this upcoming week! (Mon Sept 14-Thurs Sept 17) You can view or download the schedule here. All the info you need to get started can be found below, including what to do if you must miss a class or wish to join your class remotely.
The next email newsletter will be sent out at the start of October. Please contact me with any questions or concerns in the mean-time, and follow us on social media for more frequent updates. I can't wait to begin!
Masks will be required during group classes for all those who are able.
Care-givers and Parents are asked to remain outside during pickups/drop-offs to help keep the entry clear, and to wear a mask when waiting near entrances.
Please be punctual with arrival and departure times – arriving no earlier than 5 minutes before your scheduled class.
Limit the # of belongings you bring into the studio. Music stands will be provided. All you need is your instrument and music binder.
Junior and Senior Cellists, Guitarists and the 8:15 Adult Violin class should use the front entrance off Upper James S. All others should use the back entrance facing the parking lot.
YouTube tutorials will be posted weekly to support home learning for all students, and especially for those who must miss a class.
If you are ill, please stay at home.
Contact me at least a few hours in advance of your missed class to arrange virtual attendance! I'll set up my equipment so that you can join on Zoom for any session you cannot attend in person.
Family should self-screen before every class using the info below:
