Face Masks Safety Protocols Social Distancing

Masks

July is here with all of the heat and humidity it brings every year to Atlanta.  The afternoon thunderstorms followed by muggy sunshine have begun.

In the midst of what should be shorts and t-shirt weather we now have an additional accessory to add to our daily lives – face masks.

Who knew just a few months ago that our lives would change so very drastically almost overnight?  Yet, here we are social-distancing and donning our stylish masks.

I’m aware that some people are uncomfortable with these and feel they have a right to go without one.  Others feel that it is too much to ask of children to wear them.  Most everyone has an opinion about them.

Hear at Pedal Point Music, we are focused on safety…yours and ours. We’re also focused on providing you with the best music lessons around.  So, we’re leaving our opinions at the door and thinking about each other as we ease back to in-person lessons.

Thank you for doing the same and wearing your mask into our facilities! We will do our best to make it the great experience you’ve come to expect…even in the midst of a pandemic, with protocols in place.

BASIC PROTOCOLS:

-Wellness questions and temperature check before entry

-Masks that cover your mouth and nose at all times

-Social distancing while visiting the school.

We’re Tuned In

We’re Tuned In

It’s Sunday, April 12, 2020 and I’m sitting here reflecting back to a month ago today.  The night before our country, our states, our cities…my household slowly began to surrender to the idea that change was quickly being thrown at us.  A long weekend get away to Europe was suddenly cancelled even as we sat waiting to board our flight. So, I made my way the next day back to my studio and taught my lessons instead.  In the midst of that day an address from our governor spurred my proactive thinking, and by closing time I sat down with a couple of instructors and told them I would probably close as a precaution.  That night, a month ago, I did just that.
The studios and waiting area were thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the following day as I sent notices to everyone that in-person lessons were now suspended for at least two weeks.  That two weeks has turned into a month and the foreseeable future as our society is getting through this crisis with COVID 19.  Yet, we are still here!  

Lessons are now offered online and I’m happy to report that most of our clients have engaged in weekly online studies of piano, voice, violin, ukulele, viola and guitar. Pedal Point Music instructors are capable communicators and that’s playing out in the continuation of classes through a number of online platforms. If you haven’t resumed lessons since we’ve gone online, you should give a try!  Perhaps you’ve been thinking you want to do something new during this crisis.  Learning to play music is a wonderful option.  We’re here to assist and you can have a free virtual meeting with an instructor who will take the time to evaluate where you should begin and what your course of study should be.  Contact us today!
