♪Virtual lessons are still in practice, however,  In-Person lessons are available.

All students are required to wear a face mask upon entry and exit. Piano students are required to wear a face mask during their lesson. Flutists will be using the Win-D-Fender tool to help inhibit the potential transmission of Covid-19. Check out this video for more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT4qEJ57AFY

Flutists will also utilize a flute sock on the foot of the flute for the same purposes.
