COVID-19 UPDATE

UPDATE

A brief update from Park Cities School of Music regarding the continuation of lessons as we work to protect our faculty, students and families from the COVID-19. Our priority has always been, and will continue to be, to provide top quality music education in a safe and secure environment.

While Park Cities School of Music will continue to provide lessons to students in-person at our physical location, please be advised we are taking every opportunity to clean and sanitize our facility, studios and instruments. Understandably, if you feel more comfortable taking your lesson from the comfort of your home, PCSM can provide an online class for you in place of your usual in-person lesson.

Students coming to PCSM should be prepared to arrive a few minutes early in order to wash their hands with soap and water provided in the restrooms prior to their lesson. Faculty have been advised to wash their hands between each student, as well as wipe down any keyboards used between lessons. PCSM underwent a deep cleaning yesterday, as it does weekly; however, we will be increasing the cleaning of the facility during the coming weeks in an effort to keep germs to a minimum.

The PCSM Calendar will continue as planned. Online, at your home, or PCSM studio lessons will resume on March 23. We want to maintain regular schedule as much as possible.
