Piano lessons during COVID-19 pandemic

Piano lessons were via Skype until 21 June. Face-to-face teaching resumed 22 June, 2020, and…

I HAVE A FEW EASY FAVOURS TO ASK WHICH STILL APPLY TODAY

1. Please wear a mask during lessons. Masks can be supplied, yet it’s appreciated if you bring your own. Please do not remove the mask till you are out of the front door and dispose of it at home.

2. Should you have any covid symptom call ahead, do not come to your lesson and please get tested.

3. Before lessons, please wash your hands for minimum 20-secs. using soap and water (bathroom is adjacent to the music room).

4. No more than 3 adults (including myself) in the teaching room at one time because the room is 12.6 square metres i.e. 4 square metres per person (2 children under age 10, equal 1 adult).

5. Non-covid related: Please do not park on our driveway. There is ample street parking or parking spaces very nearby.

Successful Infection = Exposure x Time

Mask wearing is recommended for indoor areas where it is difficult to keep 1.5 metres apart and where we’re in close contact more than 15 minutes. A piano lesson is just such an indoor environment.

View this 4-min. youtube video dated 10 Aug. 2020 about the virus being airborne and in some cases still viable 16-hours after being aerosolised. If you love research then you’ll enjoy this video!

Also, remember the New Zealand experience after 100 days without any cases and the source of the community infection was unknown (no overseas travel).

Until we have been vaccinated this is our new normal

Perth is doing a great job at keeping the virus suppressed, yet new people do still enter our state for a variety of reasons.

We need to continue supporting our medical teams, hospitals and vulnerable populations or those with compromised immune systems.

You might trust me and you trust you. Yet, can you 100% rely on every contact of you or I? How about every other piano student?

To help yet further, I provide the following

Distance is maintained often as practicable. A Breville Smart Air Plus Purifier with Microbe Shield Light is on during lessons. The teaching room is adequately sized and has never more than 3 people (including myself).

The piano keys and door handles are wiped clean with disinfectant wipes between lessons. Disinfectant spray is sometimes used between classes too.

Thank you for your understanding.
