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 4 favors to ask of you

1. Should you have any covid symptoms please call ahead, do not come to your lesson and please get tested. 🙂

2. If you have the government’s covid app on your phone, please turn on your bluetooth during lessons. Mine will be on.

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

4. During lessons, please wear a mask (fresh, new masks are provided for you each lesson). Remove your used mask once you’re out the front door, then discard it at home.

I ask that you wear a mask because it’s easier for students to wear one for only a short period, just once a week, than for myself to wear a mask for all lessons, every day. Children under age 10 do not need to wear a mask unless their parent chooses.

Successful Infection = Exposure x Time

Every week, the time we spent together can be up to an hour (or longer) plus exposure is high, due to our proximity during lessons. You might also have detected that I’m in the high risk age group (over 70).

Perth is doing a great job at keeping the virus suppressed. However, there has been no declaration that the virus has been eradicated and 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 me, of you and of every other piano student, to not be the next radix of asymptomatic transmission?

To help even further, I provide the following

Distance is maintained as best as is 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 (and my wife is super appreciative also).
