Room Usage Guidelines for Spring 2021

  • Rooms are available for pianists and singers as well as wind, brass, and string players.
  • Students must use wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before entering the practice rooms.
  • Face coverings must be worn inside the room at all times.
  • Wind and brass players must also use instrument covers. If you’re in one of our ensembles, a mask and instrument cover will be provided to you in your rehearsals.   
  • Practicing will be limited to 30 minutes at a time.
  • We will rotate between nonadjacent rooms so three rooms are available at a time and each room will sit empty for at least 30 minutes before being used again.
  • Only one person can use a room at a time.
  • When you’re done practicing, you’ll be given a disinfectant wipe to wipe down the music stand, door knob, and light switch. Do not use wipes on the piano!
