COVID PROTOCOL

We are strictly following the Covid-19 protocol, recommended by CDC. 
Mask policy: While in the studio, masks are required for all: students walk to the room wearing a mask and the teacher wears a mask at the lessons (unless need to demonstrate playing) 
Parents: parents should wait in the car to minimize the contact (unless you are new to the studio and want to listen to the lesson)
Sanitizing: all surfaces are sanitized between the lessons. 
Feeling unwell for any reason: If you are not feeling well, do not come - we will have an online lesson instead when you feel better. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic we have had ZERO cases in the studio among students, teacher and accompanist, despite switching to in-person lessons as soon as it was allowed by the governor and having had a few live recitals.
