Other questions should be directed to TMA Director, Jennene Lundy.

Guidelines for the use of TMA Facilities - Fall Semester 2020

Private Lessons

  • In order to keep everyone healthy and safe, while providing appropriate instruction for each student, The Music Academy will allow in-person as well as virtual lessons for the Fall Semester.

  • Each teacher and student/family must be comfortable using the facility for in-person lessons. No one will be required to participate in in-person lessons; this is only one option.

Suzuki Groups

  • May also be in-person but this decision will be left to the teachers and families.

Early Childhood Classes

  • Classes will either be offered on Zoom or in an outdoor space.

  • ALL classes will meet for 30 minutes, with supplemental online activities throughout the week.

  • Makeup classes will be available via Zoom, or class recordings.

  • Minimum class sizes must be met for Zoom classes to run on any given day. You may be asked to move to another class, if registration is low.

  • Outdoor class will have a maximum of 6 families, and may be combined with Zoom classes when outdoor classes are no longer able to meet.

  • Outdoor classes will be held in Miss Betha’s backyard or with Miss Rene at Ambleside Park, Port Matilda. For class locations, please see the registration form. Students/families should bring a beach towel or blanket to sit on. All participants over age 24 months must wear a mask. Families will be positioned at least 6 feet apart.

  • Outdoor classes may be held on Zoom due to weather or COVID concerns. Weather cancellations will be posted at least 1 hour before class.
