Three Options for Making Great Music with Social Distancing
We've gone to great lengths to make sure that all Full Circle students have an option to fit their individual comfort level, in this time of Covid-19 precautions. Choose from:
Single Studio. Students meet with Cayt in Studio 402, in the traditional arrangement but seated 8-10 feet apart. Students should follow other protocols they feel comfortable with, such as face-masks. (Cayt does not wear one in the studio.)
Dual Studio. We use two studios, with a glass and thick plastic barrier between them. The student sits alone in Studio 401 (which means free access to our wine and snacks! LOL) Cayt's on the other side of the French doors, in Studio 402, so both people can easily see and hear each other.
Zoom Lessons. Zoom has its limits for music, but we've also noticed some upsides: Our Zoom lessons require / develop more focus & attention skills for both student & instructor, while also nurturing growth in perception and creativity. The Zoom option can be helpful for inclement weather, timing conflicts, or if someone is just a bit unwell and opts to stay home just to be on the safe side.
Students can mix and match. Perhaps you'll choose a Dual Studio lesson most weeks, but switch to Zoom on a day when there's four inches of snow. Or you'll opt for Zoom when your kids have a no-school day, but come in for a Single Studio lesson the rest of the time. It's totally up to you. Just tell Cayt first thing in the morning of each weekly lesson, if you want to switch out your regular choice.
For in-studio options, our schedule allows 30 extra minutes between lessons, during which we disinfect all surfaces such as door knobs, music stand, chair, after the previous student leaves. The Mill Building halls are, as usual, virtually deserted.
