Safety Protocols for In-Person Music Lessons

We will be following all CDC / LADPH guidelines as we resume In-Person music lessons:

  • All BAND classes will take place outside

  • Students will keep their masks on at all times

    • BAND students will ONLY remove their masks when playing

  • Students will be socially distanced and spaced out as far apart as possible

  • Students will each have their own music stand and music to avoid sharing of materials
