There are limited music guidelines, however the Maine Music Educators Association is eager to work with school leaders, and all SAUs are strongly encouraged to reinstate any music programming. The MMEA makes the following recommendations for music in line with National CDC guidance:

  • Distancing: aligned with all other classes when inside for all students
  • Playing/singing time duration: no restrictions with adequate ventilation
  • Masking/ Instrument Covers: aligned with other classes when inside for all students (singing–masked; wind playing–bell covers, masks at teacher discretion in consultation with local administrators)
  • Performances: a return to live performances (following state standards for community events)
