School year session & Home Studio reopening
The school year session begins on August 10th. I'll be contacting you in the next couple days to set up a day and time. If the school plan changes we can always adjust your lesson spot accordingly.
Beginning on August 10th I will also be offering both online and in-studio piano lessons at my house. Just let me know which you prefer!
(Recorder and flute lessons will remain either online or outside in my mom's yard)
Since I have over 40 piano students and and my studio is in my home, I decided to incorporate as many safety protocols as I could think of for reopening in addition to the requirements set by the governor.
Here's the new protocol for in-studio lessons:
I will greet each student outside and allow 1 student at a time in my house. I may be in a zoom lesson, with another student, or disinfecting the piano when you arrive so please wait outside until I come to get you.
Parents and siblings are welcome to sit in the outside chairs in front of my studio window where they can watch and listen to the lesson, ask questions, etc.
Masks are required for students and myself. I have paper masks available if you forget your mask.
Hand sanitizer will be outside by the outside chairs where students and I will sanitize our hands before and after lessons. I will also disinfect the piano between students.
I will be sitting 3 1/2 feet from students during their lesson and will be using a retractable pointer instead of leaning over students when pointing things out on the music.
I will also be running 2 air purifiers as an extra precaution.
If anyone in a student's household is sick, just let me know and we can do online lessons for as long as needed.
Similarly, if anyone in my household is sick I will switch over to online lessons temporarily.
