The health and safety of our students, instructors, and their families is of the utmost priority to us at Staccato Studios. We have made the decision to return to in-person learning this fall and will have health and safety protocols in place to ensure a healthy learning environment.
To ensure everyone’s health and safety the following protocols will be in place:
-Masks will be required for anyone entering the studio 3 years and older.
-Students will need to wash or sanitize their hands before class.
-Please arrive no more that 5-10 minutes before your lesson as there will be limited occupancy in the waiting areas.
-Distancing and/or barriers will be employed in all studios for private lessons.
-Instruments used in private lessons will be sanitized between lessons.
-The HVAC system has been adjusted to allow for greater fresh air intake in the building.
-There will be zero tolerance for students coming in sick. They will not be admitted into the lesson.
Additional Policies Applicable to Music Together
-Please note that only one caregiver or parent will be permitted to accompany each
enrolled child. Additional guests will not be admitted.
-We have limited the class size to 8 rather than 12 and will be adjusting our activities to limit direct contact between participants.
-We will not be providing instruments but we invite you to bring your own (egg shakers, rhythm sticks, and a scarf). Homemade instruments work well too!
Please do not attend your lesson if you or your child:
-Have a current COVID-19 diagnosis
-Have symptoms (including but not limited to fever, chills, persistent cough, difficulty breathing, loss of sense of taste or smell, sore throat, vomiting, and/or diarrhea)

We reserve the right to return to online learning if we deem it necessary to ensure the health and safety of our students and teachers.

We want to keep safely making music with you as we know how valuable music is to everyone’s well-being. We are excited to keep supporting you or your child in your musical learning!
