May 13, 2020: Reopening Plans

Dear valued customers and friends,

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly two months since we temporarily closed our doors at 3406 Fremont Ave N to help fight the spread of COVID-19. What a time of ups and downs, a time of restlessness, and a time of firsts. We’re happy to report that we’ve been able to offer online private lessons, fulfill a growing number of online instrument sales, and develop our plans to reopen.

Governor Inslee’s extension of the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order means our doors will continue to be closed through May 31st. Last Friday, however, the governor’s office published detailed requirements for Phase 1 of Washington's Safe Start plan. Retail businesses can now offer sales with curbside pickup, and that includes us! If you are interested in purchasing an instrument and arranging to meet us outside, please email with your name and phone number and we'll get back to you as quickly as we can.

We’re hopeful that with the start of Phase 2 this June, we’ll be able to offer limited in-store visits. While we can hardly wait, we are taking a patient and cautious approach as we work to guarantee the safety of our customers, students, teachers, and staff. This includes working within new requirements and guidelines for social distancing and sanitation.

We want to thank you for your patience and support as we await and prepare to reopen. Stay positive -- we'll get back to the music!
