FAQ for Fall 2021 Lessons

What type of lessons will Music 101 be offering in the fall?
Music 101 will open for fully in-person learning while keeping virtual classes as an option for students.  Students may choose to attend all lessons in person, all lessons virtually, or a blend of both with a hybrid schedule.

What safety practices will you be taking at the school?
The safety of our students and faculty is our primary concern.  Unvaccinated students and caregivers are required to wear masks while inside the studio building.  We will continue to check student temperatures upon arrival and ask that everyone washes hands before lessons begin.   Please read through and complete the attached safety guideline policies when reviewing registration materials.

What do virtual lessons look like?
We have worked extensively over the past year to ensure our virtual lessons uphold the same standards as our in person classes.  A student will register through our website indicating their preference for virtual study on the necessary forms.  All lessons are conducted over Zoom.  Students will be assigned a meeting ID and password when schedules are confirmed.  Music 101 will continue with regular hours and can easily be reached to help with any questions by email, phone, or in person while the hybrid schedule is offered.

Will I be able to change my lesson format during the school year?
Yes!  We ask that students commit to one format each month but a request can always be made to switch between virtual and hybrid throughout the year.  

If I attend all of my lessons in-person, why am I being assigned a Zoom ID?
We will continue to assign all enrolled students with a Zoom ID, regardless of lesson format.  This makes for easy transitions in the event a teacher or student is unwell.  We ask that everyone continue to monitor themselves for any symptoms of illness and plan to attend a lesson virtually if showing signs of sickness.

If I am a virtual student, what policies will I be asked to follow?
Music 101 will continue to follow the same policies and procedures outlined in our registration packet for all students, regardless of lesson format.  Although it is not always possible to schedule make-up classes, one credit per session for a missed lesson with advanced notice will continue to be offered.

If I am a hybrid student, can I switch my in-person and virtual lesson weeks?
Yes.  Changes can be made with advanced notice to the studio.

When will voice lessons be offered in person?
We will begin to offer in-person voice lessons for fully vaccinated students this fall.  This will remain dependent on MA guidelines as well as CDC recommendations for indoor face mask mandates as well as individual teacher preference.

Can I observe lessons with my student?
Yes!  We are happy to welcome back parents and caregivers to observe lessons whenever they choose.  Please keep in mind our practice rooms are small and you may want to make other arrangements for young siblings.  We do ask that adults wear a face covering when attending classes.

Will the waiting room be available for families to use during lessons?    

Yes!  We are looking forward to seeing everyone and catching up in our common areas during lesson times.
