Keeping Students Healthy
A lot has been said this year about keeping ourselves healthy. As flu season approaches (adding more concerns to an already concerning year), we wanted to review with you what we're doing at Music Authority to keep our students as healthy as possible.
All studios have plastic barriers between teachers and students. These movable barriers will stay in place during lessons, but are movable so our teachers can get in and out of their studio.
All teachers have access to medical grade sanitizer and we've asked them to spray down shared equipment between lessons.
There is hand sanitizer at the front door of the store and plenty of soap in each bathroom.
We request that masks be worn while in the store.
If a student becomes sick, we will disinfect the studio (with medical grade sanitizer) and notify students that may have been in contact with the student. So far, we have had very limited exposure.
All recitals are socially distanced with very limited seating for an audience.
We continue to stay on top of the changes in regulations and suggestions from the CDC in dealing with COVID and also coming soon, the flu season. We feel that interaction is important to the mental health of our students so we will continue to do our best to keep everyone here healthy and safe.
Thank you for being part of the Music Authority Family and on this crazy journey with us. We look forward to a day when we can see each others smiles without masks!
Did you know that Music Authority's owner, Melissa Loggins, is also an author? Melissa writes under the name, Anne Schlea, and just released the fourth novel in her vampire series, Retribution.
All four books (and a stand alone novel about fallen angels) are available at Music Authority. If you have someone in your house that loves urban fantasy, check out Anne's books today!
Anne's books are high school and adult friendly.
Halloween at Music Authority
Wear your costume! Trick or Treat with Ms. Natalie! We know some subdivisions are not doing trick or treat this year, so come show off your costume at your lesson! Ms. Natalie will have treats at her desk and some of your teachers will dress up, too!
It's that time of year again - time for our biggest Service Project. Each year, we collect items for American military stationed overseas during the holidays. Please pick up something extra the next time you're at the grocery story and add it to our box. Last year, we sent over 70 boxes. How many can we send this year?
Common items: Shampoo, Soap, Razors, Beef Jerky, Peanut Butter, Hard Candy (not chocolate), Books, Magazines.
We also need money to ship items. Donations can be made out to "The Music Authority Roadies."
We tried to have a Drive In concert, but Hurricane Delta had other plans. Instead, we did a live stream broadcast with limited seating. Congratulations to all the bands for pulling through, changing gears, and making a great night happen. This is Eclipse performing "Promises in the Dark" at the show!
