The Nova Scotia Health Authority has announced new restrictions for Halifax beginning tomorrow, November 26th. All organized arts and culture activities, events and gatherings and extra-curricular activities between schools are paused. In accordance with these restrictions we will be moving all private lessons, ensembles and classes online starting November 26, 2020 until such restrictions are lifted. The schedule of lessons, ensembles and classes will remain the same; everyone will just be attending from the safety and comfort of their home for the time being.
We will be using zoom as our preferred teaching platform. If you do not currently have zoom, it is free to download at https://zoom.us/ and can be used from your computer, phone, or tablet. Your teacher will send you an invite to your lesson, ensemble or class weekly, and all you have to do is click the link to log in. The groups will be private and the classes or ensembles will not be recorded or reproduced in any way.
We’ll be happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have and are looking forward to continuing our path online.
Let’s do this together!
All our best and see you online,
Dean of Music
Acting Dean of Dance
