Hello Everyone,

If you have not heard from us yet, it is because we were doing a test run of lessons for Monday people.

Our first day of online lessons was a success! Teachers really felt very focused in this format, and students were very receptive. All teachers are now set up with a home studio and are ready to go.

There will be a little trial and error this week but so far things appear to be running smoothly.

We are using Zoom, which can be downloaded on laptop, iPad or phone. For your purposes, it may be best to use a laptop or iPad if you have one because the screens are bigger. If you prefer to use your phone, then I suggest using a screen mirroring option if you have it to connect to a television or monitor.

IMPORTANT: When you have registered for Zoom, it is important that you send an email to info@canalmusicstudios.com with the email or phone number you have registered on the Zoom app. The teachers will use this info to set up and host an online session by sending that email or phone number a link to the online lesson session.

Teachers will also help you set up your camera for the most effective angle. Lessons will stay at their usual scheduled times for the remainder of this week before we make any adjustments.

Here is an example of a teacher’s home studio with the laptop placed high as a camera that allows students to see clearly the keyboard.

Thank you for your patience as we move ahead, and please send email as we cannot access the landline.

Take care and be well,

Adrienne Walsh

Dear Parents, Teachers, and Students,

After having followed closely the international, national and local events of the past few days, we have decided to close the studios and transition to online lessons effective immediately.

Please pay attention to any emails from Canal Music Studios in the next few days as we will have instructions and details on how online lessons work and how they will be conducted as well as pertinent dates and scheduling details. We encourage all students to stay enrolled and continue their lessons, especially since there is bound to be much home time over the next few weeks. Online classes will begin on Monday, March 16th.

We recognize the importance of maintaining a social distancing without compromising education, and will provide the students an outlet to get together online while we deal with the contagion at hand.

Thank you all for your patience in this process, and we look forward to things returning to normal and us all safely coming out of the epidemic.

Sincerely,
Adrienne Walsh
Canal Music Studios
