2020/2021 Group Classes will begin online, and private students have the option of either online or in-person
Group classes will stay online the entire month of September. We hope to being in-person classes in October, provided that the province of Ontario remains in stage 3, with low daily local transmission rates (ideally under 3 cases per day).
Once in-person, strict hand washing and social distancing measures will be in place. Soap is preferable to sanitizer, as sanitizer can ruin the finish on the keyboards. Students and parents will be expected to wash their hands as soon as they arrive. An automatic soap dispenser, and clean, single use hand towels will be provided. All students over the age of 10 are expected to wear masks. There will be markings on the floor 6 feet apart for social distancing.
At this time, singing is not recommended, so we will supplement with rhythmic activities and humming.
A Covid-19 waiver will be sent to all students
All guidelines followed are recommended by the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Associations (CFMTA) and the Ontario Registered Music Teachers’ Association (ORMTA)
