UMC is essentially a school environment. In compliance with Minnesota Department of Health and CDC guidelines, and for the safety of our students, families and instructors we are continuing to require masks to be worn while in the common areas of our facility. Each individual instructor, student, and if applicable, parent/guardian, will determine whether or not masks need to be worn inside individual teaching studios during lessons.

We invite each student to request and participate in whatever precautions would make them comfortable during individual lessons. This includes mask wearing, the use of plexi barriers, and social distancing. Individual comfort and safety is a top priority.

Further updates will be posted here on our website as overall conditions progress.

ON-LINE LESSONS will remain a regular offering for any and all who prefer distanced learning.

HERE you will find a comprehensive description of our updated guidelines and measures we will be taking to ensure your safety and remain compliant with MDH and CDC guidelines.

Please feel free as always to contact me personally with any questions or concerns. My personal cell number is: 630-561-7943

We are looking forward to a rockin’ summer!

Mike Arturi, Universal Music Center Executive Director
