It is that time of year again. Colds, strep throat, the flu and the dreaded stomach virus are on the prowl again. You may not have considered it but pianos are little germ magnets. Let’s go over the basics of keeping everyone feeling good.
1. If you have been running a fever in the past 24 hours, STAY HOME! It is just a piano lesson. I don’t want your germs and neither do the 10 students with lessons after you.
2. Wash your hands before coming into your lesson. We keep hand sanitizer in the studios but nothing is better than good old fashioned warm water and soap. Sing your ABCs while washing.
3. If you child is feeling bad but not running a temperature please let me know. I will take a few mintues and clean the piano before the next student.
We try to keep the pianos, door knobs, and computers as clean as possible. If you child has been sick and practicing you might use a mild disinfectant on your keyboard at home.
Let’s hope that everyone stay well this winter!
