At Stages Music Arts, we take the safety of our students, staff and patrons very seriously, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following the CDC’s Guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting, and have invested in an abundance of sanitation supplies and PPE. We clean regularly throughout the day as well as between each lesson, studio session and class.
Our staff, students and patrons must adhere to CDC guidelines. Anyone who comes to Stages must have their temperature taken and answer screening questions.
Our staff members, including our instructors and recording engineers, practice various safety measures, including washing and sanitizing their hands upon arrival and throughout the day; wearing face coverings inside the facility; maintaining a distance of 6 feet from others whenever possible; and bringing their own water bottles, as use of our water fountains is prohibited. Plastic face shields are also available for students, staff and studio musicians.
We’ve taken a number of additional precautions to further reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. In our HVAC system, we’ve installed Plasma Air ionizer, which has been proven to reduce the amount of airborne coronavirus particles by 99% and the amount of virus on surfaces by 80% within 10 minutes. Plexiglass partitions were installed in our vocal lesson rooms, and our studio’s live rooms were outfitted with trifold plexiglass partitions for group rehearsals. We are also utilizing UV ovens and wands to sterilize microphones and other electronic equipment, all of which is sanitized for each rehearsal.
Our spacious lesson rooms average 160 square feet, allowing students and instructors to physically distance at all times. Our live rooms, where our group programs take place, are approximately 1,000 square feet with 16-foot ceilings, also allowing for physical distancing.
We understand if at this time, students are not comfortable taking lessons in person. For those students, all of our instructors are set up to teach virtually.
