STUDIO PLAN FOR COVID 19
Dear Students and Parents,
I am writing to provide you with the most information I can at this time about plans for teaching and learning in the coming fall term.
The world faces many uncertainties at this time, and yet music has the power to be an uplifting force, a calming refuge and a wholistic activity that gives a sense of normalcy. I have been working hard to provide my students with continued options and opportunities for learning, and am dedicated to supporting their continued education in every way I can.
There are many unknowns about the public health conditions and directives that will apply in September and beyond. This letter proposes a flexible plan that will take into consideration the many variables and options ahead.
Since the beginning of this pandemic, my primary concern has been the health and wellbeing of my students and studio families. Within this context, I am also motivated to ensure that learning can continue.
With these key considerations in mind, I propose:
Please let me know what books you have at home via email. If there are any unused books, please return them to me ASAP, as I am in the process of ordering new books.
I am in the process of updating my website to show what I know at this time. I still plan to do three recitals (December, February, and June), the Music Artistry Program (Feb. 19-21) and Chapter Honors Competition (March 6), as well as a few other events, such as Theory testing (which was cancelled this year due to COVID).
I also suspect that those students who are doing public school will find that there are gaps in their school day, and am open to switching lesson times to allow for an earlier or even different day lesson. Just let me know what might work for you and I will see if I can accommodate it!
Be safe, and stay healthy! I am excited for another year with each of you!
