Virtual Lessons and In Person Lessons
As the pandemic wears down, things at this point are pretty close to being back to pre-Covid here at the studio. We are looking forward to a great year for learning music at the studio! We have started many new students over the past few years very successfully with virtual, hybrid, and in-person lessons, and families have been quite happy with the progress the students have made. Our hybrid lessons were a success the past few academic years, and we are looking forward to the optimum balance of in person lessons and virtual for the best experience for each student for the coming fall. Our lessons, parties and recitals are back in-person and in full swing, and all our students have their recordings on our website and Youtube.
While we are now back to in-person lessons at the studio, you don’t have to come in – you can just continue with virtual lessons if you want. You can also switch back to video lessons at any point during the year. Please read our health policies listed on the back of our admissions agreement for more information about illnesses, including covid, the flu, and other illnesses. Families have done a wonderful job of doing a virtual lesson while a student was slightly sick so the rest of the studio could remain open.
Safety is our top priority and we will be using safety protocols with diligence so we can minimize the risk of any one person falling ill. Our studio had health policies before covid, and the ones currently in place are fast and effective:
* Special HEPA air filters, fans, space heaters, and ventilation
* Hand washing before each lesson
* Hand sanitizer
* Forehead scanner temperature checks
* Cleaning of commonly touched surfaces

We will also be following the guidance and protocols of the CDC, the State of New Jersey, the town of Westfield, and paying attention to the state and local departments of education.
Please understand that these plans are subject to change and may be updated throughout the school year.
We are looking forward to another great year of music at the studio!
