Please note that during the Shelter-In-Place orders for Santa Clara County
all lessons are being conducted online on Skype or Zoom.
When it comes to the safety of our students in these uncertain times, we do not take risks.
We have taken every possible precaution to implement safety and social distancing protocols that offer maximum protection from COVID-19 transmission.
We consulted directly with a Harvard-schooled epidemiologist to design our safety protocols.
"Although there is never a 100% guarantee that transmission won’t occur,
I would feel comfortable coming into the studio for lessons,
and I’m a paranoid epidemiologist.
I bet your actions will set an example for other vocal teachers,
many of whom will follow suit." - Dr. Amy Sapp
