Our Response & Important Information

Utah schools are making rapid and unprecedented changes as our community responds to COVID-19. Gifted Music School's leadership team is closely monitoring and following guidelines from the statewide coronavirus taskforce and other local government and health agencies.

Following the Utah Coronavirus Taskforce's recommendations for social distancing, Gifted Music School is implementing a temporary suspension of all group classes, ensemble rehearsals, and other large gatherings until further notice.

Additionally, all individual private instruction has been moved to an online learning platform as of Monday, March 16, 2020. Check your email frequently for updates and further instructions.

In an abundance of caution, we have decided to keep our physical campuses closed until the end of the spring semester. 

As our school grapples with this fast-changing situation, we are deeply grateful for the patience, flexibility, and resilience that our community continues to demonstrate. We recognize and share your disappointment in seeing several of our educational programs come to a halt and the postponements or cancellations of highly-anticipated events. While our team is making every effort to minimize these disruptions and facilitate continuity in our day-to-day operations, we are under the guidance of officials and agencies who have expertise in this matter. Our number one priority is, and must always be, the health and safety of our community members.
