Current Status: We continue to offer Yamaha Group Classes, as well as Individual Piano and Violin classes, in live streaming, online format with students and teachers attending the lessons from the safety of their home
Year-End Recital: In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we are looking forward to celebrating our students’ achievements and success in the new, virtual reality. Details are provided as part of our newsletter.
Planning for September: While we wait for the government to provide guidelines on social distancing measures that will remain in place past summer, 88Keys is planning ahead for September with the following measures to be implemented:
Classroom Setup, Capacity, and Schedule:
Our classrooms are rearranged to space out keyboards to provide more distance between the students. As a result, our classroom capacity has decreased. We have also amended our Yamaha Group Schedule to stagger class’s start time with a 10min interval added to avoid crowds in the waiting area.
School’s Policy Changes and Hybrid Classes:
To reduce the risk of an outbreak and to provide a safer environment for all students, our sick policy will be updated to prevent students with symptoms of a common cold (fever, cough, and runny nose) to attend classes in person. Instead, we are working on developing a hybrid class solution, where students who are sick or are in quarantine, will have an opportunity to join the class online from the comfort of their home.
Please stay tuned for more details on the Hybrid Class Solution.
In addition to the Sick Policy, our terms and conditions were amended to include an online program delivery option. The school reserves the right to switch to online format delivery if, for any reason, the school’s physical location is inaccessible, unsafe, or forced to be closed.
Please feel free to reach out, if you have any questions or require further information
