SAFETY MEASURES FOR ALL STAFF AND CUSTOMERS
All employees are required to wear masks when interacting with guests. All employees are required to wash their hands when entering the building, and frequently throughout the day.
We have sanitation stations throughout the store with hand sanitizer. We have installed a sneeze guard at the front counter to protect guests and employees. Masks are required for guests entering the store beyond the front counter. Disposable masks are available for customers who do not have their own. If you want to browse the store, you will be required to wear gloves which we have at the front counter. We ask you to not bring small children in the store at this time.
Instrument cleanliness is critical to us all which is why any instruments played are sanitized before being placed back on the shelf or in the case. We will also ask you to sanitize your hands before playing any instruments.
SAFETY PROTOCOL FOR RESUMING LESSONS IN PERSON
Below I've listed our safety protocol for resuming lessons at the store. The guidelines below have been edited to include options for wind, brass, and voice lessons. Please review all safety guidelines carefully!
Beginning Wednesday, July 1, the store will be available as a space for in-person lessons for winds, brass, and voice. Al Stephens and I (Naomi here!) rearranged the back of the store to create a large classroom housing both grand pianos and enough space for up to 10 students to sit six feet apart. The space will be utilized for our Jump Ahead Camps in July and August, and will also be where private lessons take place for wind, brass, voice, and piano lessons.
Lessons will either resume at the store or continue virtually based on teacher AND student discretion. If either party is uncomfortable meeting in person for lessons, those lessons will continue virtually. Please communicate with your instructor directly regarding your lessons.
Safety Protocol for In-Person Lessons:
Masks are required for both teacher and student while inside the store. Wind/brass/vocal students and teachers may remove their masks during a lesson but are asked to wear a mask while in the store before and after the lesson. Gloves are required to browse store merchandise (available at the front counter).
Both teacher and student must sanitize or wash their hands before each lesson.
The teacher is responsible for wiping down any surfaces in the lesson studio after each lesson (doorknobs, chairs, music stand, piano keys). Piano teachers: please use a paper towel to dry piano keys after using a sanitizing wipe. Wipes and paper towels are available at either counter.
Parents must wait outside in their cars during lessons. They will be permitted to accompany their child to the door of their lesson studio, and come back inside to retrieve them after their lesson, but the couch area will be off limits. Please wear a mask inside the store.
String and percussion lessons will take place in the three larger studios only (Studios 5, 6, and 7) to maintain maximum distance possible between teacher and student. Piano, voice, wind, and brass lessons will be scheduled in the Studio 615 classroom space at the back of the store.
Last, and most importantly, stay home if you are sick. If either teacher or student, or a member of their household, has experienced symptoms of illness within 48 hours before the lesson, that lesson must be cancelled and held virtually instead. If anyone tests positive or is presumed to be positive for COVID-19 they must refrain from in-person lessons for at least two weeks after symptoms have disappeared.
In-person lessons for strings, piano, and percussion are available with the above safety measures starting June 1, 2020. In-persons lessons for winds, brass, and voice are available with the above measures starting July 1, 2020.
