Re-Opening with Caution

While all of our lessons will be accessible online as before, Neighborhood Music will have a soft launch for just a small number of students and teachers who would prefer live in-person lessons.  All teachers who are giving in-person lessons have been fully vaccinated for Covid-19.  

Facility adaptations

1)  Plexiglass panels at front desk and in rooms to separate teacher from student
2)  Mirrors on walls to still communicate face to face
3)  Face masks are mandatory on premises except in a vocal or wind instrument lesson.
4)  Face shields can be worn by instructors and made available for students to purchase
5)  Maximum capacity in small rooms:  2 in same household + 1 teacher
6)  Maximum capacity in large room 6 singles or 4 family units
7)  Meticulous cleaning of keyboard by teachers between lessons
8)  Additional twice or more daily cleaning of bathrooms, public handles, knobs
9)  A/C HVAC >1 micron bacterial air filtration are installed!
10) Health monitor on site to enforce safety protocol

Policy Changes:

Any missed lesson because of schedule conflict or sickness can be made up online.  Forgetting to show up at a lesson will still not be refundable or made up.  

Here are the strictest guidelines for retail and rentals from the COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER OF THE HEALTH OFFICER, which we measure up to, and the updated guidelines for the December 2 TARGETED SAFER AT HOME ORDER with exemptions.

Attached is our instructor employee protocol document for facilities usage at NMS:  Employee Health Protocol

During this time when California has declared a state of emergency and has determined the coronavirus outbreak "past the point of containment," and until NMS determines the crisis is over, we at NMS will have to take the strictest measures regarding teacher and student illness.

NOTE:  some of the below restrictions go beyond minimum conventional restrictions, and are being put into place in order to provide psychological and emotional comfort to the listening party.

Anyone who has any fever or cold-like symptoms including sore throat or deep-chested coughingthey should by NO means enter the premises of NMS.  Those recovering from having any fever or cold-like symptoms must stay off the premises for at least 10 days after the symptoms have completely disappeared, or 7 days after a once positive test comes back negative.  

If students have any symptoms, they should notify NMS and their teacher as soon as possible and arrange for a make up lesson.  Make ups will generally be done online.  

Each student, teacher and staff member shall fill out the Covid-19 checklist app found by using an iPhone or any desktop and "share" with your teacher 2 days before arrival, and 1-5 hours before arrival:    Click On Icon Below:

Teachers will disinfect door handles and piano keyboard before and after entering the room.

The bathroom sink, front desk and chair armrests should be wiped down after usage.  

Anyone who has traveled out of state shall contact to arrange for online lessons or package alterations to fulfill the 14 days required self-quarantine period for 14 days after travel (or 7 day self-quarantine if tested negative after returning home).

All parties should wear a protective face mask at all times on the premises.  

Thank you for being considerate toward the safety of our community during this time of high alert.
