Announcement for the students of Vantaa Music Institute and their guardians 8.5.2020
According to the decision of the Finnish Government and Vantaa Urban Culture Department, education in Vantaa Music Institute returns partly to contact instruction starting 14.5. Contact instruction concerns mainly individual lessons. Even then a teacher and a student can consider how to keep the last lessons of this academic year. If a student, a teacher or their family member belongs to a coronavirus risk group, the remaining lessons in May will be arranged as remote teaching. Some of the teachers may have already kept their lessons (18 lessons) by 13.5. The students of those teachers have no more lessons after that.
Orchestras, choirs and music theory lessons continue as remote teaching unless the teacher wants to do otherwise. Then general instructions mentioned below must be taken into account really carefully.
The Music Playschool doesn’t return to contact instruction on this academic year. You can watch the videos that Music Playschool teachers have shared until end of May.
- If you are sick or feeling even slightly sick don’t come to the lesson
- Please wash your hands carefully before the lesson. cough in your sleeve or in a disposable paper (throw away to the trash after use) and wash hands again
- Before the lesson a teacher will take care of disinfecting the instruments and other equipment that are in communal use. If teacher tunes student’s instrument it must be disinfected before and after the tuning. Music Institute will take care of purchasing suitable chemicals
- Avoid unnecessary physical contact
