Music Studio of Denise Strayer
SEPARATE SAFE SPACE: In-Person lessons will be conducted in the basement of my home which has a separate entrance from main household. Space will have an acoustic Wurlitzer Spinet piano for an authentic piano experience. The studio will be sanitized with UV light and disinfectant vaporizer before and after each student's lesson. There will also be a room Ionizer which continually provides clean air for students.
COVID RISK ASSESSMENT PROTOCOL: Upon entering studio, Student will have a contactless temperature check and answer 3 questions to assess COVID risk. If student has a high temperature and/or shows a MEDIUM/HIGH risk, then In-Person will be replaced with a REMOTE lesson of student's choosing (Live Online or Digital). Please allow an additional 5 MINUTES to your lesson time to ensure ample time for protocol procedures. Covid Risk Assessment form will be filled out and emailed with each In-Person appointment. A preview of the Form is available on this page. Teacher will take an additional 5 minutes after each student leaves to properly sanitize space.
ADDITIONAL COVID SURCHARGE: Because of the investments made in providing a safe space and additional time needed for protocol and sanitizing space for students, there is an additional $3 per In-Person lesson which can be paid separately or added to monthly tuition payments. If paid in advance and In-Person lesson cannot be held, a credit of $3 will be made on student's account.
FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES during In-Person Instruction and Bathroom will be TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE to students.
