WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR 2020 AND BEYOND . . .
The plan for reopening Ms. Becky’s Studio:
Unless conditions change for the worse, off-line lessons will resume during the week beginning June 22, 2020. In order to err on the side of caution, the following practices will be in place until further notice:
•Please do not bring students to the studio for lessons if there is illness in your home. As imperfect as they are, remote lessons are still an option if necessary, because of illness or quarantine. Students will be expected to come to the studio.
•I will be wearing a mask. The use of masks by students is preferred, but will not be required.
•In order to minimize contact with doorknobs and handles, students are requested to wait in the car or on the porch until I open the door and let them in.
•Only the student receiving the lesson will be admitted to the studio during the lesson. I will walk students out and open the doors at the conclusion of the lesson.
•To prevent disinfectants damaging the ivory key caps on my acoustic piano, we will be using a digital piano for lessons. The keyboard will be disinfected before and after each student.
•The usual practice of students washing their hands before touching the piano will continue.
•Students will need to bring their own pencil, along with any other practice aids they may have been given.
•Any manipulatives used in the lesson (iPad, dice, game markers, etc.) will be disinfected before and after use.
•The Starburst basket will be put away for a while.
