Dear Music School Family,
As we all navigate the COVID-19 crisis, I want to keep you updated as to what the Music School is doing.
Private in-person lessons have successfully made the transition to online lessons and we are very happy to share that to date more than 400 lessons have taken place remotely! I want to thank our faculty and staff for all their hard work to make this happen and our families for their flexibility and willingness to give this new approach a try. I am inspired by the creativity and community spirit that made it possible for us to hardly miss a “beat” over the past two weeks.
If you have not yet made the transition to online lessons and would like to but need some help, please let us know and we will work with you! You can reply to this email, or email Daisy directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Sprouting Melodies® early childhood classes are also now available online, giving our “Miniature Maestros” a little structured playtime to look forward to twice a week.
While our physical space is closed, the building is being deep cleaned with a special disinfectant so it will be ready for our students when we have the green light to re-open.
Per the Governor’s order yesterday, our physical premises will remain closed until May 4. We will continue to track the situation with the city and health officials, and will re-open as soon as it is safe for everyone.
For now stay home, stay safe and keep making music!
Online Learning FAQ’s
The first priority for the Music School is the safety and well-being of our faculty, staff, students, and their families. As such, due to the current state of emergency, we are making the shift to online lessons for our students.
While we realize this is not an ideal situation, we feel very strongly that it is important to keep some sense of normalcy and connection for our students and Music School community during this time of great uncertainty.
If they have not already done so, your teacher will be reaching out to you to set up an online learning platform (i.e. Zoom, Facetime, Skype) that will work for both of you. Your lesson time will remain the same, the only change will be that your lesson will happen remotely from the safety of your own home.
