Going the Social Distance: Our Commitment to Health and Safety

The Covid-19 pandemic has upended most aspects of everyday lives, from the way we work to our children’s summer vacations. The good news is that Music & Arts is proud to resume safe in-person instruction for most instruments at a store near you. As much as we love music, we value health and safety even more and value the trust of our parents, students, and staff. 

The in-store lesson experience

To ensure the health and safety of our students and staff, we’re adhering to a strict set of guidelines that follow CDC standards. Ready to return to music lessons? Here is what you can expect

Safety Measures

Music & Arts is committed to delivering phenomenal and personalized music instruction. While maintaining our standard for excellent music education experiences, we’ve launched a detailed checklist of safety protocols that meet the CDC’s standards and are followed at each of our locations nationwide. 

  • We are proud to resume in-store lessons for wind instruments with the use of store-provided PPE (performance protective equipment).
  • At this time, we do not offer in-store voice lessons. We continue to offer online, private music lessons with expert background-checked instructors using secure video technology.
  • We now require regular temperature and health screenings for all students and staff. Questions asked during health screening cover Covid-19’s most common symptoms, including loss of taste and smell, cough, and sore throat. Any student exhibiting these symptoms will be asked to leave the store and resume lessons when their symptoms have subsided. 
  • Students, staff, and parents are required to wear masks in our stores at all times
  • We’re providing hand-sanitizer to students and teachers, which is required to be used before entering and exiting lesson studios and between lessons. 
  • All lessons are spaced 15 minutes apart for deep cleanings between lessons
  • Teachers and students are required to keep 6 feet apart at all times
  • Students and instructors will now bring their own instruments, papers, and equipment. Teachers and students won’t come into contact with each other’s instruments or equipment

Social Distancing with Student Pass

Arriving at your local store, ready for your lesson? We’ve implemented a digital Student Pass system to let us know you’ve arrived. In order to meet social distancing guidelines, Student Pass allows Music & Arts to closely monitor the number of students, parents, and staff entering the store. Arranged through email, Student Pass alerts Music & Arts’ staff members that a student has arrived outside and is ready for health screenings and temperature checks. While parents aren’t permitted to wait inside while their child has their lesson, some instructors offer secure remote viewing through smartphones and laptops via the Student Pass platform. Speak with your instructor for details.

  2. Social distance has been discussed extensively in the past as a way of coping with the increased risks associated with living with people suffering from an illness. The concept is simple, in a pandemic people living far apart can come together to support each other. In this respect, a pandemic occurs when a new disease emerges, with a potentiality of causing serious epidemics. Since contact with infected persons can be difficult or impossible, the pandemic virus spreads through contact with the bodily secretions of those who are infected.
