To My Valued Clients - Your Well-Being Matters
*****VIRTUAL LESSONS ONLY****
Your health and safety are a number one priority. I trust you are all doing well and coping well with the support of family and friends.
Thank you all for jumping aboard and being willing to do online lessons the last two months, even though some of you don't consider yourself super technical when it comes to the online world and technology. I appreciate you and your encouraging words.
As you know, effective Saturday, March 21, 2020, voice lessons became AVAILABLE ONLINE only. I no longer use studio locations in Vancouver, BC and Abbotsford BC since there is so much talk about the risk of transmission via droplets and aerosols and apparently more so in singing and even more in loud singing. Singing in person at this time is considered a very high-risk activity.
We also know that as of Tuesday, May 19, here in British Columbia, we have been in Phase 2 of Covid-19. We are seeing the BC economy open up little by little as we all continue to exercise caution and maintain social distancing.
But what is being said about the future of singing together in person?
There is a lot of caution and as a result, the studio has no immediate plans to resume in-person lessons. Here are some recommended resources that speak of the high risk of singing.
CARING FOR ONE ANOTHER: Let's all stay informed and care for one another. There is always hope when community rallies together. We just need to know of the need in order to respond. We all have heard on the news the importance of social distancing. Let's keep caring for one another this way too, for however long it takes. We will get through this together!
In the meantime, I am offering online lessons to help you move forward with your passion to sing and am taking on new clients.
