1. On arrival, please follow the stepping stones and steps leading down to the back studio door. Remember to close the gate behind you to help keep Flash safe.
2. Only students will be allowed in the studio for a one-on-one lesson. Guests and family are permitted to wait in the lobby at this time, but please limit who comes to your lesson.
3. Students may wait in the waiting room before their lesson. We’ve made this space welcoming with comfortable seating, reading material, and a flatscreen TV streaming the best music videos of the last 40 years.
4. Please do not come inside to wait more than 10 minutes before your lesson. If you are very early, please wait in the car and text me that you are here. When the studio is open, you may enter.
5. There is a bathroom available. Paper towels and soap will be provided and the bathroom will be sanitized frequently as needed. Water is also available in the kitchen.
6. Please immediately sanitize your hands upon entering or wash your hands. There will be hand sanitizer provided.
7.We follow CDC guidelines at all times. A mask is not required at this time. Masks are optional, but I will have some on hand if requested or required.
Before You Come:
1. Please check your temperature before coming. I may or may not require a temperature check before your lesson starts.
2. DO NOT COME for an in-person lesson if you have a fever or are exhibiting ANY signs of illness out of the ordinary. I am happy to provide you with a virtual lesson if there is any possibility you could be sick.
You may be contagious if you have:
Fever or chills.
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
Muscle or body aches.
Loss of taste or smell.
Congestion or runny nose.
Nausea or vomiting.
Symptoms may be mild to severe and may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus.
3. Do NOT schedule an in-person lesson if you have recently traveled anywhere out of state or out of the country or have attended a large event or think you may have been exposed to Covid-19.
4. All original lesson policies are in place as far as attendance, reschedules and cancelations, etc. Please arrive on time, ready to work.
5. Please give proper notice if you need to change your lesson from in-person to virtual. It will take me time to prepare the studio space to switch for in-person or virtual. If I am waiting for you in person, I will not be looking for you virtually.
6. Please bring or electronically send me any sheet music or tracks we might need. We will not be able to share sheet music. I will have electronic devices to view materials on but be prepared to use your own if you have it as a backup.
7. If it makes you more comfortable, we will maintain a distance of 6 feet while singing.
8.Any face mask worn must have a see-through part. I may purchase some to try out. Face masks/shields are not necessary for fully vaccinated individuals but may or may not be required for unvaccinated individuals. These will certainly be phased out as progress against Covid-19 continues, but we can use them if it makes you feel more comfortable. Just let me know.
9. I will be sanitizing between in-person lessons and spacing lessons apart to allow for proper air circulation/cleaning.
10. There will be open windows, ceiling fans, and air purifiers for proper ventilation.
Mask Suggestions for Voice Students:
Finding a mask that works perfectly for vocal lessons is quite a challenge, and while we have found several that may work better than the standard surgical mask, these are just suggestions as some specialty masks tend to be quite expensive. Please check with your teacher to see what they recommend before purchasing a mask.
