School Update – 6/23

Our hope is to reopen for limited in-person lessons this fall (August/September), but we are taking things one month at a time. Students and teachers will be able to choose their lesson experience (virtual or in-person) when the time comes. For the month of July we will be continuing exclusively with virtual lessons. 

For those of you curious about what in-person lessons will look like, we have been researching and exploring options to ensure the safety and comfort of those who walk through our doors. We will be following guidelines from state health officials and the CDC. In-person lessons may include the following changes.

-face masks required for students and teachers
-plexiglass barrier for front desk-wiping down of materials and instruments after each lesson
-the removal of chocolate kisses (a sad day indeed) after your lesson
-hand-washing required before each lesson-no shared materials (i.e. bring your own drumsticks and tuners, you are still welcome to use our amps and cables) 
-thorough, frequent cleaning of shared spaces-plexiglass barriers in lesson rooms
-limited seating in the lobby

Group lessons prevent more of a challenge and we are currently working on ways to rehearse together safely. We know things won’t return to the way they were, but we are hoping to see you all in person soon when the time is right. Please feel free to share any feedback you may have with us.

We are so grateful for your flexibility, patience, support, and positivity during this unprecedented time. 

Keep Shedding!
