Policy Information
...due to COVID-19 Pandemic
Due to the pandemic since 2019, we have implemented new policies or changes to help maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students, parents, instructors and all persons that enter the studio:
 
  • No extended waiting in the lobby area. Students may enter the lobby for a brief wait prior to their lesson. 
     

  • Students are encouraged to use hand sanitizer before entering the lesson room. 
     

  • Please be punctual when picking up students after their lessons.
     

  • Please do not send students to lessons with any symptoms of sickness. If a student comes to the lesson and has any symptoms of sickness, the lesson will be stopped and the parent contacted to come pick up the student. Music Quarters will have available a non-touch digital thermometer to check for fever. Any students with an elevated fever will be sent home. No makeup will be offered for this lesson.
     

  • Instructors will also offer the same courtesy of canceling their lessons if they are sick. Each instructor will advise their option on the canceled lesson. Instructors will make up these canceled lesson days based on their own schedules and policies. Makeup lessons may be offered on a virtual platform. 
     

  • High touch areas such as piano keys, piano benches,, door knobs, etc. will be sanitized after each lesson.
     

  • Music Quarters staff will be sanitizing door knobs, door handles, bathroom fixtures, chairs, counter tops, etc...throughout the day. Studio is always cleaned thoroughly each day prior to opening.
     

  • Mask Update February 26, 2022. Based on the announcement by Mecklenburg County officials, all persons entering indoor public buildings or establishments are no longer required to wear a mask or face covering. Music Quarters will implement a "mask optional" policy in our studio. Instructors may have their own policies regarding the wearing of a mask and will advise parents of their own policies. We will have available a disposable mask for purchase for $1.00 if a student would like a mask while in their lesson. 
     

  • Instructors will continue to teach from an acceptable social distance as appropriate for each instrument. Please note, teaching a musical instrument may require the instructor to approach the student at a closer distance in order to show or demonstrate a particular technique for their lesson.
     

  • Please be advised Music Quarters will work diligently to maintain a clean and safe studio environment for students, parents, instructors and the general public that enters into our buildings. Please remember you are entering into a public building. Anyone that enters into Music Quarters is at potential risk of exposure of COVID-19 or any virus.
     ~Policies are subject to change or be updated at any time.
