COVID-19

IMPORTANT

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE BEFORE BOOKING ANY PIANO SERVICE

 

UPDATED JUNE 24, 2021: Now that Ontario has confirmed that step 2 of the provincial reopening plan will be begin on June 30th, I have resumed booking in-home piano service starting Monday, July 5th. Due to the amount of appointments that were postponed, and the customers who have contacted me during the stay-at-home order for appointments, there may be a longer wait period than usual for an appointment. My apologies for any inconvenience; your patience is greatly appreciated. I look forward to servicing your pianos once again!

 

I am fully vaccinated, but I have a small child at home, and so I will require the following: 

  1. Access to a sink to wash my hands

  2. The recommended physical distancing of no less than 2 metres, at all times, with anyone present in the household during my visit.

  3. I will be wearing a mask for the duration of my visit, and when physical distancing is not possible (at least 2 metres), I request that anyone else present in my workspace is wearing one as well. 

  4. Please clear off all items from the top and immediate surroundings of the piano prior to my arrival.

  5. If possible, and weather permitting, open windows to allow for air circulation.

  6. At this time, I prefer all payments to be made using e-transfer.

 

If anyone in your home or studio: has been out of Ontario, experienced symptoms or has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or suspects having come into close contact with anyone infected with COVID-19, please book your appointment for at least 14 days after possible exposure.

 

Thank you for reading and I look forward to seeing you!

How to Clean Your Piano

Now that you are staying home you're probably playing more!  Here are some steps to keep your piano keys clean: 

  • Wash your hands before and after playing

  • Clean your piano keys!  Here is a great resource for cleaning your piano keys safely. 

    • Note that disinfecting sprays and wipes can damage your keys.

    • It can be tricky to know if you have ivory or plastic keys.  Contact me if you are unsure. 

    • Be very careful to not get any drips down the side of the keys - that can damage the wood under the key tops

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any other questions or concerns. Wishing good health to my family, friends, and customers!
