We are very excited to be able to reopen our doors and see all of our student’s smiling faces again. We have all waited patiently for the opportunity to regain some normalcy in our lives. TriTone Music Studios is working hard to ensure that we can provide our students with the music lessons they enjoy while keeping everyone’s safety and well being as our highest priority. We are following the Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health guidelines to offer music education in a safe and healthy environment. With that being said, if you are feeling ill or have come into contact with anyone who is sick or has tested positive for Covid-19, please do not come in to the studio. We will do our best to keep everyone safe but we require the support of all of our students and teachers to be successful.
Although we have been fortunate in Dufferin County to have a relatively low number of of COVID-19 cases, there is still a significant risk of transmission of the virus both to teachers and students during one-on-one music lessons. In order to reduce these risks and keep everyone as safe as possible, TriTone has implemented the following policies, which will remain in place for as long as necessary. If there are any updates to these policies, they will be posted in the studio, on social media and on our website.
Below are the policies that must be followed for every in-person lesson. If you wish to begin or continue lessons, but are not comfortable with the in-person lesson policies, please contact us about options for taking virtual lessons instead.
· All students/parents are required to complete and return the attached screening form prior to returning to lessons. We ask that you look these questions over before every lesson and self-assess. If you answer “yes” to any question on the screening form, please contact the studio to arrange for virtual lessons during this time.
· If you or anyone in your family is not feeling well, please contact the studio to arrange for virtual lessons during this time.
· If you or anyone in your household has travelled outside of Ontario, please follow all guidelines given by Public Health.
· When arriving for your lesson, please leave any unnecessary belongings in the car. All students should bring their own method books, notebooks and writing materials, as we will be limiting exposure to shared items.
· Once students have entered the studio for their lessons, we ask that all shoes be left at the front door like always. This will help us keep things as clean as possible.
· All ukulele and guitar students should bring their own instruments, picks and cables.
· All drum students should bring their own drumsticks.
· All vocal students will be required to stand behind the impermeable barriers located in each vocal room. Vocalists may remove their masks while singing behind the barriers as per the WDG Public Health guidelines state.
· Students are asked to use the hand-sanitizer provided upon arriving at their lesson and before leaving.
Our office staff will remain available for payments to be made monthly. If you have a payment to make, please notify the student’s teacher before the lesson. We will have one person at a time in the office to maintain social distancing. All surfaces will be disinfected after each transaction.
We ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate this new way of music education. We want to offer a safe environment but that requires safety and cleaning measures to take place between lessons. We will do our best to be diligent and effective in a timely manner.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the studio 519-940-9082

Abigail grew up in a very musically-inclined family, with her grandfather being the lead singer of a band, her uncles and father attending an arts school for music, and her siblings all taking music lessons. This encouraged Abi's love for music, and she began taking violin lessons when she was 7 years old. Abigail learned different genres of music there, moving from fiddle to classical, then studying the Royal Conservatory of Music. Abi began taking vocal lessons in Orangeville when she was 12, and she taught herself ukulele to accompany her singing. This later progressed into learning guitar and piano as well, all to further her musical abilities. Abigail is a big fan of musical theatre, and enjoys participating in musicals and plays around Orangeville. Abi also plays the trumpet in her school band.
Abi is honoured to teach at Tritone Music Studios, and encourages others to love music as much as she does!
