Starting August 2021, Singers will have the option of in-person lessons or remote lessons via video call. All unvaccinated singers must wear a mask and Ms. Bloom will as well. All in-person lessons will begin a minute or two late to allow for cleaning of all touched surfaces between students. If you arrive early or on time, you can wait in the waiting area until the room is clean and use this time to wash your hands.
Pianists can also attend lessons in-person or online. All in-person lessons will begin a minute or two late to allow for cleaning of the keys and all touched surfaces between students. All piano students will be required to wash their hands before the lesson. If you arrive early or on time, you can wait in the waiting area until the room is clean and use this time to wash your hands. All unvaccinated students must wear a mask and Ms. Bloom will as well.
Singers and Pianists:
Students and their household members who have had any COVID-19, cold, or flu symptoms in the last 14 DAYS (2 WEEKS) may NOT come into the studio (symptoms include coughing, sneezing, fever over 99 degrees, loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, runny nose, runny eyes, vomiting, or rash). DO NOT COME TO THE STUDIO UNTIL ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD ARE FREE FROM ALL SYMPTOMS FOR AT LEAST 14 DAYS. We will switch to online lessons during this time.
I will continue to offer video call lessons via Zoom and FaceTime for anyone who does not wish to come into the studio or is staying home due to mild symptoms as a precaution. LET ME KNOW IN ADVANCE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SWITCH YOUR LESSON FROM “IN-PERSON” TO “ONLINE” OR FROM “ONLINE” TO “IN-PERSON”.
Thank you for your continued patience at this time. Please know that I am following the studies and protocols set by the National Association of Teachers of Singing and the Music Teachers Association very carefully and I will keep you updated as things progress and change. I will continue to require masks on unvaccinated students until it is no longer a requirement in schools. Let’s continue to make music!
