FAQ


What are your Covid-19 protocols?

Our Covid protocols will be responsive to health and safety conditions at the time of your visit. Prior to your trip, we will be in contact with any protocols that are in place.

Are you limiting the class size?

Class size is limited to a maximum of 30 students. Extra fees may apply for groups larger than 30.

What happens if circumstances for my class change and we can’t attend at the Winspear?

No problem! We are happy to alter the delivery method of your program to accommodate your current circumstances. Contact us to make a switch to one of the other delivery methods. Please note that upon changing delivery methods, your scheduled date may need to be changed, but our staff will work to assist you through altering your booking. There is no fee to change formats.

If I am bringing a homeschooling cohort for a fieldtrip, can I invite another homeschooling group to join?

Homeschooling groups are asked to follow a limit of 30 students per group. Extra fees may apply for groups larger than 30.


What video conferencing platform will you use for our online program?

The one you’d like to use. We can host the program through Zoom, or you can host through your platform and invite us to join a meeting with you. We are well-versed with Zoom, Teams, and Google Meets, among others.

How have the activities of the programs been adapted to be delivered virtually?

The activities you would experience at the Winspear have been digitized for the multi-format offering of our programs. Though the most immersive and authentic experience for students would be to attend at the Winspear in-person, the digital version of these activities is presented in an interactive way with our excellent instructors. Through the screen sharing option on most video-conferencing platforms, sound clips, videos, and 360-degree photos will engage your students with an inquiry-based approach to learn all about sound, acoustics, music, instruments, and the amazing Winspear Centre building. There will be some supplemental materials that we’ll share with you to expand on what is learned during your program, too!

Do I need to do anything to prepare my class for this field trip?

Our program coordinator will be in touch prior to your scheduled booking to go over anything we may need for assistance with the delivery of the program. As the teacher of your students, we will rely on you to be a bit of a moderator during the video-conference session, but we can take the lead, so your prep time is minimal to host us.

What happens if circumstances for my class change and we’d like to switch delivery methods?

No problem! Our programs have been designed to be flexible and meet the need for sudden adaptations to accommodate the unpredictable nature of the virus. We are happy to alter the delivery method of your program to accommodate your current circumstances. Contact us to make a switch to one of the other delivery methods. Please note that upon changing delivery methods, your scheduled date may need to be changed, but our staff will work to assist you through altering your booking. There is no fee to change formats.
