Dear Conservatory students, parents, and families,
We are so impressed with how students are adapting to distance learning, and we’ve loved hearing about all the adventures coming from this unique situation. We again want to thank everyone in our musical community for helping us maintain the routine of making music together through distance learning.
Here at the Omaha Conservatory, we have been actively monitoring the coronavirus situation and sending regular updates to our community. As of March 18, 2020, the Douglas County Health Department has banned all gatherings of 10 or more until April 30, 2020.
Because of this, Omaha Conservatory of Music will continue offering lessons via distance learning through Sunday May 3, 2020 - we will continue to assess the situation as it progresses and keep you informed. We encourage you to keep working closely with your teacher to continue private lessons and group classes via distance learning in the coming weeks. Furthermore, we’ve made an update to our policies regarding distance learning via virtual lessons - please read those here: omahacm.org/private-lessons/policies
All in-person private lessons and group classes have been moved to virtual learning. Concerts and events at the Conservatory are canceled/postponed/moved on a case by case basis during this time. Alongside this, the Conservatory will be implementing virtual spring recitals. Your teacher will be in touch with information regarding virtual recitals as soon as possible!
Our top priority is the health and safety of our musical community. These decisions are meant to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect Omaha Conservatory of Music students, families and the greater Omaha community.
Thank you again for supporting our mission to create a vibrant musical community, even in the wake of unprecedented challenges. We thank you for your patience and understanding and hope you join us in our ongoing commitment to the health and safety of our students and families as we navigate forward.
