COVID-19 Guidelines & WAIVER

COVID-19 Guidelines

The safety of our students, families, and faculty is our primary concern as we move into lessons for the upcoming academic year.  Please take a moment to read carefully through our safety guidelines.  For the well-being of all, we will be strictly adhering to all safety policies outlined below.

Music 101 will be taking the following steps:

  • All teachers and staff will wear masks.  No one is allowed in the building without a face covering.

  • Pianos will be cleaned between classes.  Instruments such as guitars and print materials will not be available for students to share and borrow for lessons.

  • Sanitizing stations will be available in common areas as well as individual studios.

  • Social distancing will be practiced.  Markers will be used to help students maintain an appropriate distance in common areas.

Music 101 is asking for students to understand:

  • If you are experiencing ANY symptoms of illness, please remain home and choose to participate in your lesson virtually.

  • If you have received a positive COVID test or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, please do not attend in person lessons until your quarantine period of 14 days is complete and/or you have received a negative test.

  • Student temperatures will be checked at the door.  If your temperature is over 100.4, you will not be able to participate in a lesson at the studio that day.

  • Students will be required to wash their hands upon arrival.

  • Every student should wear a mask for the entirety of their visit to the studio.

  • The waiting room will be available to students and caregivers who are waiting to go into a lesson.  Students will be asked to wait at a marker for an instructor to receive them.  Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes early to your lesson time and plan for prompt pick up at the end of class.  We ask that parents and caregivers leave the studio once a student has gone into the lesson.  Students will then wait in the lobby after lessons for parent or guardian pickup.  Students are asked not to wait outside.  We will continue to use email and phone as our primary means of communication with families.  We are also happy to schedule an appointment to speak with you in person anytime during the academic year.

  • Please remember to bring all of your necessary materials.  Studio copies of music books will not be available to borrow.

  • Unfortunately, because of the size of our practice rooms, only a student may attend lessons.  We ask that parents and caregivers do not sit in on classes at this time.  A guardian is welcome and encouraged to sit in on lessons on remote weeks. 

COVID-19 Waiver

Music 101 has implemented preventative measures to reduce the spread of the highly contagious Coronavirus/COVID-19.  These measures are consistent with guidance provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the CDC.

Despite the implementation of these measures, Music 101 cannot guarantee that students will not become infected with Coronavirus/COVID-19 while participating in any of the classes offered by Music 101 and its staff.

It is a requirement of all students and persons entering the business premises of Music 101 to comply with the procedures outlined in the Safety Guidelines for Fall 2020.  This includes allowing members of the staff to check a students temperature before entering.  Music 101 reserves the right to discontinue in-person lessons effective immediately for non-compliance.

Anyone who has received a positive COVID test or has been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, cannot attend in person lessons until a quarantine period of 14 days is complete and/or you have received a negative test.

Any student travelling out of state, or if a member of the same household travels out of state, must comply with the current MA requirements for quarantine and request virtual classes until it is complete.
