Pritchard Music Covid-19 Statement

Pritchard Music is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our Students, Families, Customers, Teachers and Team Members. We are carefully monitoring COVID-19 and all communications from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), government agencies and local health officials to keep tabs on this ever-changing situation. We want our students, teachers, families and customers to feel confident and comfortable when coming in for a lesson or to shop.


All of our teachers are teaching in the studio and will continue to do so. However, if you are exhibiting flu-like symptoms, please let us know. The teachers have all set up accounts with Zoom and can teach your weekly lesson online rather than in person when necessary.

Lesson time:

Many of our teachers are able to come in earlier in the day or on a different day for lessons while schools are closed, call and talk with a team member to talk about scheduling.

Store Cleaning:

While we have always had stringent cleaning and sanitation procedures in place in our store, we are taking additional precautions to keep everyone safe. We have enhanced our store cleaning procedures to include the use of disinfectant cleaner in:

Lesson rooms including pianos, chairs, door handles, pencils and white board
Chairs in the waiting area
counters at checkout, all instruments in the retail section
Door handles


We hope this alleviates any concerns you may have. Our Team and Teachers are ready to continue to provide you a solid foundation in music and help you with any musical needs you may have.

All our best,

Joe and Becky Pritchard
