“Online learning can be as good or even better than in-person classroom learning. Research has shown that students in online learning performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction, but it has to be done right.”
— Dr. Christine Greenhow, Associate Professor of Educational Psychology and Educational Technology, Michigan State University; 2018 Recipient of Michigan State’s Teacher-Scholar Award (Posted 6/22/2020)

After a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked an outbreak of COVID-19 to choir rehearsals, scientific research confirmed that singing could spread the virus, through aerosols. The results of preliminary studies also suggest the risk of COVID-19 infection from droplets and aerosols generated by playing wind instruments could be significant.
The health and safety of all students is paramount. As there will be occasions where a teacher is required to demonstrate, there is the possibility of a high risk of aerosol exposure. Bearing in mind that a professional flautist is likely to expel an increased amount of air than the average student, all lessons are currently taught online only, to ensure the safety of all students and their families.
For the purpose of child safeguarding, a parent/guardian must be present for an online lesson where the student is a child.
The situation will change as and when enough scientific data is available to guarantee safety.
