    If your child left your instrument at school and it was labeled I called you to inform you to pick it up.  If your child left their instrument and I didn't call you, I didn't see their instrument OR it was not properly labeled.  You should call the school to see if anyone is on site to let you pick it up.

  • How to keep your instrument clean & safe!

    Posted by:

    Dear Plaza Musicians & Parents/Guardians,

     

    Many of you have shared concerns regarding instrument cleaning in light of the Coronavirus.  There are a few simple common sense steps you can take to ensure that your instrument (or your child's instrument) is clean and safe to use.

    1) ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS FOR 20 SECONDS WITH WARM WATER & SOAP BEFORE AND AFTER PRACTICING!

    2) ALWAYS REMOVE THE REED (Woodwinds Only)!  I also recommend soaking previously used reeds in a solution of mouthwash & water (just a little mouthwash and a lot of water) for two minutes (this will disinfect the reed).

    3) WASH YOUR MOUHTPIECE WITH WARM WATER & DISH SOAP: You can and should wash your mouthpiece (if you have one) with warm water using a mild dish soap (also use a mouthpiece brush if you have one).  This applies to all Brass Moutpieces and Woodwind moutpieces (BUT take the reed off first).

    4) BRUSH YOUR TEETH & USE MOUTHWASH: BEFORE practicing brush your teeth and use mouth wash.  Then rinse well with water to avoid damaging your instrument.

    5) WIPE YOUR INSTRUMENT DOWN: Use mild (non-bleach) disinfectant wipes to wipe down the keys and body of your instrument (both before & after use).

    6) DON'T PRACTICE WHEN YOU ARE SICK: IF you feel like you are getting sick, DON'T practice! It can and should wait.

     

    Sincerely,

    Mr. G
