Special MESSAGE about the Current Public Health Emergency

This is a message to all Echelon Music private students and group members:

April 2, 2020

During this unprecedented time, it has been a challenge for all involved to live our lives in the way that we are accustomed to on a daily basis.  While music is a very important part of our lives, it is also important to be safe as we all navigate through this together.  Echelon music is aware of the financial hardships this has created for most.  As a business owner we have also been hit hard but understand that some people's situations are more dire than others.  The main concern is for us all to be healthy both mentally and physically.  Music is one way to keep our mind in a good place and we understand the importance.  We hope that all of you are in a good place and making the best of the current situation.  We have a plan to help you through these times when it comes to your music lessons:

  1. For lessons already paid in the month of March:  Lessons you have missed in the four weeks can be made up in 2 ways.  They can be made up by doing a virtual lesson via webcam.  These will be scheduled individually and will count as a lesson.  They can also be made up when this is over and we are able to meet in person.  This is your choice and we will work with you closely on scheduling.  If you are able to continue for April this is very appreciated and an important factor in the future of Echelon Music.  We will contact you individually to discuss your decision.

  2. We have left you the option of paying April’s fee and continuing virtually or making up the lessons when this is over.  We also understand that some have difficult financial situations and if you wish to take April off we understand.  However, we do ask that you return in May and resume payments for continuation of lessons.

  3. Additional groups such as Echelon Youth Jazz Ensemble are in a “stand by” mode and we have every intention of resuming sessions and performances with a modified schedule based on when the current situation is resolved.  Keep working on the charts!
  4. We have taken all steps necessary to make “Virtual Lessons” a positive and enjoyable experience.  We encourage you to give it a try and still welcome new students to utilize this option for their continued musical growth and learning.

    We would like to thank all of you that have stood by Echelon Music during this situation and we are grateful for your support.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.


      Thank you so much!
