Dear NCMC Families,

We will begin our Summer Session on July 6th, with both in-person and virtual lessons.  The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff are our highest priority. The process of reopening our classrooms has been carefully planned to keep everyone safe and to meet all state and local guidelines.  

The NCMC is keeping a close eye on the issue of COVID-19. We are closely monitoring notices from the Nantucket Health Department and other state and local agencies to stay informed of new guidelines as they occur.  Below are some of the procedures we have implemented. 

The building at 56 Centre Street is cleaned daily with special attention to areas that are frequently touched, such as doorknobs and handrails. Masks are required in the building and six-foot distancing is maintained whenever possible. Pianos will be cleaned with sanitizing wipes or sanitizing spray after each student.

Parents may wait for their students on the back porch but will not be allowed to wait inside the building. Please note that the outdoor seating area is not cleaned with the regularity of the building itself. 

In order to enter the NCMC, you will need to complete a facility log and a health screening form.  If you have experienced any of the symptoms of Covid-19 in the past 14 days, including cough or fever over 100.4, please do not enter the building.  These measures are in place for all faculty and staff who enter the building, as well as visitors. We also ask that students wash their hands at the hand washing station before proceeding to their classroom.  

Our children have demonstrated exceptional perseverance during these difficult months. Music is an effective means of combating anxiety and stress. As always, the faculty, staff and Board of the NCMC aim to provide outstanding musical education and programs in a safe and healthy environment.  

I look forward to having music fill our halls once again! 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our office at 508-228-3352. 

Warm regards,

Andrea Wulffleff

Director of Operations
