COVID-19 Policies & Procedures

For all 2022 summer semester in-person classes and lessons:

Enrolling in any class indicates that you will follow these policies, as well as any updated requirements as dictated by the evolving situation.  We want to continue to bring music into your lives, but in a safe way!

1.  Masks are required for all adults and children ages 3 and up, at all times within the studio building on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoons/evenings (masks are optional for all other times).  Masks must cover the nose and mouth.  Children under age 3 who are comfortable wearing masks are encouraged to do so.

2.  Any adult or child showing any signs of illness will not be admitted to the studio.

3.  Please help your child wash his or her hands in one of the bathrooms, and use hand sanitizer before entering and upon exiting the classrooms.  If you need to leave the room during class, please wash and/or sanitize your hands again before re-entering the classroom. 

4.  Class sizes will be limited to ensure sufficient spacing.  We will be implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures.  Activities that involve congregating and touching (such as listening mat and circle dances) will be modifed appropriately. 

5.  If you, your child, or any member of your household or contact circle is or has been ill (cough, fever, etc.) in the past two weeks, please join your class via Zoom rather than in-person.  

6.  All instruments used in toddler classes (rhythm sticks, jingles, shakers, etc.) will be collected separately, cleaned, and not re-used for at least one week.  If you would like for your child to have his or her own instruments for the duration of the semester, that can be arranged, or you are free to bring your own.

7.  Adults attending classes must wear socks (shoes will be left in the lobby), and all children are encouraged to do so. 

8.  Please limit classroom attendance to one grown-up per child (feel free to have other family members join on Zoom to watch!).  In preschool classes, the adult will stay for only the first 15 minutes of class.

9.  Please keep waiting room time to a minimum.  Children in Art & Music Camp, Music Makers, Group Keyboard, and private lessons can be dropped off; please leave the building during class time.  Our classes have staggered starting and ending times to avoid crowds gathering, so please enter and exit in a timely fashion.  Do not enter the building more than 10 minutes before your class begins.

10.  No food or drink permitted in the classrooms.  Please limit the items you bring inside the studio to those absolutely necessary for the duration of your child's class. 

11.  If you are unable to attend one of your classes in person, you can join on Zoom.  Depending upon available space, you may be able to attend a different in-person class session to make up for a missed class.  Class size limits will be strictly enforced, so please check with your teacher if there is room in the class you would like to attend.
