HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS / COVID-19
I believe that the best form of voice instruction occurs in person. Additionally, I believe that masks provide a hindrance to singing and the educational process. However, given the state of the world amidst a global pandemic, I will take the necessary precautions to ensure that all parties are comfortable with the studio environment. For in-person instruction, this will include the wearing of masks (when requested) and social distancing (when requested and as space allows). Since in-person lessons will occur in my home, I will work to keep a clean and sanitized environment to the best of my ability. If the student wishes to study with me remotely, we can work on finding creative solutions to implement an online studio.
For students wishing to take lessons in person, it is imperative that all parties monitor their health and avoid contact with others even if minor symptoms arise. If lessons need to be cancelled and/or rescheduled, this will be done on a case by case basis. Since we are working together in person, in a manner of speaking, we are welcoming each other into each of our respective “bubbles.” Please do everything in your power to respect the safety of all involved and err on the side of caution when it comes to health risks.
