Summer Session Plan:

MacPhail’s plan aims to utilize instructional spaces up to 50% of capacity at any point in time. This will apply to the following facilities – Minneapolis, Apple Valley, Austin and Chanhassen. The White Bear Lake building will continue to be closed through the summer.

Individual Lessons (Individual Instruction, Music Therapy and Suzuki) is at the discretion of the student and the teacher and is not required; instruction may continue remotely.

Summer Camps will be in-person with limited group sizes. Online options are still available.. Madeline Island Chamber Music will take place in person limiting one student per dorm room. The Suzuki Institute will be a hybrid plan of in-person and remote offerings.

Sing Play Learn with MacPhail® will be offering a small number of in-person classes and camps with limited class sizes. The child and their caregiver will be spaced appropriately and assigned a dyad mat for the class.

Group Instruction (classes, ensembles, and MacPhail Music for Life™ classes) will continue as they have in the Spring Semester with small groups and ensembles occurring in person with proper distancing.

Community Partnerships (Schools, Music Therapy, MacPhail Music for Life™ , Sing Play Learn with MacPhail®) are gradually returning to in-person operations. Each partnership is addressed individually with consultation between MacPhail’s teacher(s) and the partner

More information as well as any updates to the above plan will be posted on our Coronavirus Updates page.
