With the latest advisories and safety measures announced today at 4pm by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, more and more piano teachers are likely to conduct their piano lessons online.

Most workplaces will be closed from next Tuesday (April 7) and all schools will move to full home-based learning a day later, as Singapore puts in place a "circuit breaker" to pre-empt escalating coronavirus infections, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

With the latest advisories and safety measures announced today at 4pm by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, more and more piano teachers are likely to conduct their piano lessons online.

Most workplaces will be closed from next Tuesday (April 7) and all schools will move to full home-based learning a day later, as Singapore puts in place a "circuit breaker" to pre-empt escalating coronavirus infections, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

"First, stay at home, as much as possible."

"Second, avoid socialising with others beyond your own household," he said, adding that people should avoid visiting even their extended families who are not staying with them, especially if they are elderly or vulnerable."

"Third, people should go out only to do essential things."

"The spirit of these measures is to get all of us to minimise physical contact," he said. "If we don't go out, if we avoid contact with others, then the virus won't be able to spread. It is as simple as that."

Christian Mongiard works in the high-intensity medicine unit at Circolo di Varese Hospital and volunteered to aid patients suffering from Covid-19.

On Saturday, when heading to buy a sandwich in the northern Italian hospital, he spotted the piano and performed an impromptu song to an isolated waiting room whilst still wearing his protective mask and scrubs.

I am sad to share with you that I need to cancel my remaining solo tour dates in Europe.

Unfortunately, due to the current climate of uncertainty, and related logistical challenges, it is not possible for me to continue the tour – indeed six of my concerts have already been cancelled by venues who are having to respond to various governmental guidelines.

I am sad to share with you that I need to cancel my remaining solo tour dates in Europe.

Unfortunately, due to the current climate of uncertainty, and related logistical challenges, it is not possible for me to continue the tour – indeed six of my concerts have already been cancelled by venues who are having to respond to various governmental guidelines.

This new recital program is very close to my heart, and I will work on finding opportunities to share it with my fans in Europe sometime in the future. I

’m sending love and healing energy to everyone affected by the Coronavirus and other illnesses in Europe and across the globe, including in my home country of China.

Take care of yourselves, and each other. - Yuja

It’s the heartwarming combination that never fails to eke out a smile. Catto, meet piano...

Sir Anthony Hopkins has been playing the piano for his cat as he self-isolates amid the coronavirus pandemic, and it’s just what the whole world needs right now.

In the video, the 82-year-old actor serenades his furry companion with a slow piano improvisation, as the relaxed feline sits on his lap and enjoys the performance.

Instead of a round of applause(paws), the four-legged listener shows its appreciation through some lovely, heavy purring.

The Coronavirus Hasn’t Slowed Classical Music - The New York Times. As closures give way to a deluge of live streams, performances have never been more accessible.

In-person performances have been replaced by a deluge of digital ones — live streams and recently unlocked archive recordings — that have made for a calendar hardly less busy than before concert halls closed.

The Coronavirus Hasn’t Slowed Classical Music - The New York Times. As closures give way to a deluge of live streams, performances have never been more accessible.

In-person performances have been replaced by a deluge of digital ones — live streams and recently unlocked archive recordings — that have made for a calendar hardly less busy than before concert halls closed.

In the past week alone, I’ve been able to watch older performances I missed; ones I had hoped to travel for this spring; ones that would otherwise seem unfathomable, like the pianist Maria João Pires coming out of retirement. If anything, I’m taking in more music than before; the only difference is that now I can be in multiple places — or at least multiple browser tabs — at once.

How to continue your piano lessons during the Coronavirus outbreak has become the biggest question for private piano teachers and music students for the last few days.

While we have closely been following updates from Public Health England and the UK Government, there is little advice on the field of private music lessons due to the extraordinary nature of its swift spread.

Due to the proximity between pupil and tutor during private piano teaching, most of us have become worried about how the Covid-19 current situation can affect your one-to-one piano lessons in the immediate future.

For the foreseeable future Hampstead Piano Academy will remain open as usual and will also be operating via online piano lessons.

With the likely scenario of parents and children having to stay at home, we are keen to recommend a temporary period of video call lessons from the comfort of your home.

The current Coronavirus pandemic brings questions to the fore about how to eliminate the spread of infectious and harmful microorganisms in our teaching or practicing spaces.

One of the most burning ones is what can be done to sanitize or disinfect piano keys without harming them. Piano manufacturers advise against using any form of alcohol, but what’s the alternative?
