COVID-19 Response

Covid-19 Response and RecommendationsTo our CCM families, faculty, and friends,

The health and safety of both our school community and the greater community are of the utmost importance to us. The Concord Conservatory of Music is now offering Distance Learning for lessons so that our students can stay at home and still continue with their music education. We will continue to closely follow the recommendations from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the CDC.

All workshops and in-person student recitals are on hiatus. Distance Learning for our private students and group classes will continue until further notice. Group classes not currently running online will resume on a date to-be-determined. 
We have been planning with our faculty to make these arrangements. Your private lesson or group classs instructor will be in touch with you directly to confirm your lesson time and will be sending you a link to the Zoom video platform. If you do not have the capabilities to do a video lesson on a laptop or a tablet, please let us know.

What are we doing to help prevent the spread of illness?

  • Disinfecting wipes have been placed in each studio. Instructors are asked to wipe door handles before and after lessons, as well as shared instruments such as pianos, keyboards, and percussion equipment
  • Students and faculty are asked to wash their hands before and after each lesson. We have posted signs around the building with this reminder
  • We will not be providing food or open beverages at our events until further notice
  • Students should not come to their lessons or classes if they are sick. They should be completely symptom-free, without any medication, for 24 hours before coming to CCM, out of consideration for all
  • Faculty and students are asked to sit/stand at a distance when possible

What you can do?

The Massachusetts DPH has recommended the following habits to prevent COVID-19 and other illnesses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Clean things that are frequently touched (like doorknobs and countertops) with household cleaning spray or wipes
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Use a tissue or your inner elbow, not your hands
  • Stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with others

CCM is committed to keeping you updated on our response regarding COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
