We are pleased to announce that One-One lessons may resume in-studio from Monday, June 15, 2020. Group vocal classes will remain online for the remainder of 2020. Our studio is registered as CovidSafe, with a set of procedures and teaching modifications in place.

We kindly request singers, families and visitors to please read the following information. Aerosol emissions are produced while we speak and sing. It is a condition of lessons in-studio that the following are adhered to:

  • If you show any cold/flu-like symptoms, feel unwell or are unsure, Please do not come in - we will sing online. In light of recent community case reports, if you have been in the proximity of a NSW Health advised hotspot, please opt to have your lesson online even if you are not required to self-isolate. Our cancellation policies remain in place, but we will offer flexibility where reasonable. If you are a close contact, are directed to self-isolate, or are found to be positive for Covid-19, please inform us.

  • Our studio teaching rooms have spacing floor marks of 3m apart - Please adhere to the distance and positioning requirements during lessons. Only 2 people are allowed inside each teaching room.

  • Please do not sing directly in front of your teacher.  Instead, sing towards the markers on the wall. 

  • Please wash hands and sanitise them when entering prior to your lesson. You will be provided with suggestions and teaching modifications for in-studio lessons. Our teachers may opt to wear a mask when required at this time and masks are available for you to use during your lesson if you wish.

  • Parents, please consider dropping your child off and waiting inside your carThis assists us in reducing our numbers in studio.

  • Visitors who are not in our schedule or who are not a direct relative of a singer booked in our schedule must sign in. This is mandatory for tracing and safety, if required. Details are kept only for the purposes of tracing and Visitance (digital registration) is used for this purpose. Details are not kept for any other purpose than to communicate with visitors if required.

  • We encourage visitors to download and use the CovidSafe app. The CovidSafe app is used in-studio and remains active all the time.

  • We encourage online learning where possible at this time. Our Zoom lessons are efficient, modified and practical.

 

Our teaching rooms and equipment are cleaned and sanitised after every lesson, and as such, we request singers and visitors to please allow teachers time for this when visiting.​

We thank all of our singers, families and community for your support and cooperation while we endeavour to make your lessons and visits as safe, fun and enjoyable as possible during this time.

Stay Safe, and keep singing!
