COVID-19 UPDATE:

Effective April 4, 2022: Community Music School encourages everyone to wear face masks, but will no longer require masks in our building, with the following important exceptions:

1. At an individual faculty member's sole discretion, she/he may require students and parents to be masked during their lessons, and students and parents must comply.

2. Voice students and teachers, and students and teachers of brass instruments must wear face masks during their lessons, and they must use bell covers wherever possible.

IF YOU ARE SICK:  Remember, if you are scheduled for an in-person lesson and are sick or may have had a COVID exposure, do not come to the building.  Contact your teacher to make arrangements for an online lesson.

The plan is continuously reviewed and updated as conditions allow.  The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our first priority.  Read the full plan here.
