Community Safety First

By attending a lesson in-person, I am asking that all students recognize there is an assumed risk associated with being in relatively close proximity - as is reasonable - for a private piano lesson.


Understand that Shad may occasionally stand or sit in close (less than 3 foot) proximity as is necessary to conduct a piano lesson.  Shad will use hand sanitizer before and after close or near-close contact with a student. The piano keys get wiped thoroughly between each household / lesson.

Students MUST wear clean socks & shoes - if there is inclement weather, be sure you have clean socks as boots will not be permitted in my studio room. (the lobby is fine for street shoes).


Shad will wear shoes that he wear indoors in the studio only.


Students may leave shoes in the lobby on the designated black carpets - street shoes are permitted in the lobby unless they are soiled / in which case I ask that they be left on the black carpet in the hallway.


Students must regularly wash the piano bag, and bring all of their own materials to lesson. Shad will handle materials as needed. 


"Blue+" air purifiers will continue to run in the studio and the lobby when we are present. ​​


 All visitors - please wear a mask in 

 my studio. 


 I prefer that those who take lessons

 in-studio are fully vaccinated - but I

 will never ask your vaccination

 status.


 I will wear a mask while others are 

 present in the studio..


 I will review this policy late April, after 

 everyone has returned from spring

 break travel and we have a better

 sense of the recent variants of the

 COVID-19 virus.


 My first priority is safety and well-

 being. Community Safety First.
