COVID-19 Best Practices (CDC Recent Changes)

If you are not vaccinated you should wear a mask in indoor public places.

* Recommendation for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission.

* Fully vaccinated people might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission, particularly if they are immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease from COVID-19, or if they have someone in their household who is immunocompromised, at increased risk of severe disease or not fully vaccinated.

* Recommendation for fully vaccinated people who have a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 to be tested 3-5 days after exposure, and to wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result.

Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.

Live Music Rehearsal Rules

  • Always take your temperature before you attend live rehearsals. If you are feeling sick in any way STAY HOME!
  • Always wear a mask and practice safe distancing while approaching and entering the buildings. Never enter until invited. Stay in your car until you hear me whistle! Never join a group of friends in close contact, hugging, shaking hands, or sharing food/drink
  • Always bring your own personal water bottle
  • All brass players should always bring a floor towel
  • Follow entrance and exiting instructions to the letter at any and all facilities
  • Always bring your own disinfected lawn or folding chair and music stand with you. Share these clean personal pieces with no one! Clean them again as soon as you return home.
  • You will be taught a seating plan with specific assigned seating areas in one of five sections. You will be at 12 to 15 feet intervals
  • Always take your instrument in it’s case to your assigned seat. Do not open it or start warming up until instructed to do so
  • Keep your mask on at all times pulling it down only to play if you are a wind player
  • Clean restrooms are to be used one person at a time and only when necessary

Interplay Between Zoom Meetings and Live Rehearsals

The Live rehearsal options do not take the place of, but do augment our Zoom classes and lessons. Over the next months we will all be preparing and studying the same NEW MUSIC in each option.

The Zoom classes will be focused on technique and individual musical improvement.

The Live rehearsals will focus on Ensemble balance, interpretation, and musical performance techniques. We suggest that you take advantage of our webpage activities, our Zoom connections, and our live rehearsals. This great combination of activity will produce excellent musical results.
