Resound School of Music’s COVID-19 Safety Plan

by Phil Barrow August 21, 2020

Our COVID-19 Safety Plan:

Returning to Music Lessons During COVID-19

With September fast approaching, many families are wondering how music lessons will look during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Your health and safety has always been our number one priority at Resound School of Music, and we have been taking the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to both students and teachers on our team.

As we work to return to in-home music lessons, a number of challenges must be addressed in order to provide a safe environment in which students can learn, while at the same time mitigating the risk of infection to both our clients and teachers. We have prepared a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan to outline the specific policies, guidelines, and procedures for those who are returning to their in-home music lessons this fall.

Lesson Policies

Online Music Lessons

We will continue to offer online music lessons as an option throughout the remainder of summer and into the new school year. This option will remain available to both students and teachers for however long they wish to continue. While online lessons are not ideal for every student, they remain the safest option to prevent the spread of infection.

In-Home Music Lessons

We will be begin to offer modified in-home music lessons as an option on a case-by-case basis, starting in September 2020. Please note that in-home lessons will not be available if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • If you have exhibited cold or flu-like symptoms within the past 14 days
  • If you have travelled out of the country within the past 14 days
  • If you have been in recent close contact with anyone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19 or anyone who has travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days

Guidelines

Precautions and Safety Measures

Below is a list of guidelines and safety measures that will help reduce the risk of transmission as we return to in-home music lessons. Students and teachers should practice:

  • Wearing a mask and/or gloves during their lesson
  • Physical distancing (avoiding handshakes, hugs, etc.)
  • Frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer during the lesson

We understand that individual comfort levels may vary, so prior to restarting in-home lessons, we will ask you to provide a list of precautions for your teacher to take when they return to your home. We will be enforcing specific guidelines and providing the necessary PPE to our teachers in accordance with your preferences.

Continuing to Serve You

Our team continues to work remotely, so if you have any questions or concerns during this time, you can contact our customer service team by email at [email protected]. We are always happy to hear from you and will return your message within 1 business day.
