Young Lions Jazz Conservatory will closely review state and local recommendations to determine if it is safe to resume in-person classes when our session starts in August. We are hopeful that we will be able to do so and are working on steps to ensure the safety of our students and faculty. These include:

  • Limiting ensemble sizes to ensure a small number of people are in the classroom at one time
  • Reconfiguring the classroom to allow for social distancing
  • Sanitizing the classroom and providing hand sanitizer for students and staff

We hope to provide more detailed information on how we will conduct 2020-21 classes by mid-July.
