    How Franklin Music Academy is prioritizing safe in-person music lessons during the pandemic

    While music is profoundly meaningful to us, we know we have a big responsibility. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of the families we work with and our staff. To ensure safe in-person music education, our instructors and kids must follow a strict set of Daily Pandemic Safety Procedures. We’re committed to keeping our kids safe and staff safe. See our guidelines below:

    Daily Pandemic Safety Procedures

    • Students and instructors are asked to wear a face covering over the mouth during lessons
    • We closely monitor daily updates and recommendations from the CDC
    • No physical greetings
    • Seats, piano keys, tables, and doorknobs are sanitized after each lesson
    • Our staff is trained in thorough and frequent hand-washing: fronts, backs, wrists, between fingers with soap and water for at least twenty seconds each time
    • Supervised 20-second hand washing is required for every student before lessons 
    • Employees have been instructed to never come to work if they experience fever or any COVID-19 symptoms. We ask at this time that students and families do the same 

    More about Franklin Music Academy 

    Franklin Music Academy was founded after educator JP Ahmad saw how much the kids in his fifth grade class enjoyed performing Beatles songs. Word quickly spread around Austin about the school, and its curriculum quickly expanded to offer new programs, instructors, and instruments. The academy is now seen as a staple in Austin’s music education community. We’re proud to offer lessons on a variety of instruments for students of all ages and musical backgrounds. 

    We’re here for your kids during this tough time. Music can help.
