Levine continues to monitor the evolving situation concerning coronavirus (COVID-19), and we will update this website regularly to share information about our preparations and responses.

Please know that our paramount concern remains the health and safety of our students, families, faculty and staff. Given the uncertainty of the course of the pandemic, we continue to proceed cautiously.

Now is a great time to get started or come back to music – learn more.

Current Status

Select summer offerings will be available in-person – view the in-person offerings.

Starting on June 28, private lessons may be scheduled in-person at our NWDC, Strathmore and Silver Spring campuses, and during limited hours at our campus at THEARC in SEDC. Due to safety concerns, our Virginia campus will remain closed for the summer months; Virginia families will be contacted about alternative options.

View our Return to Campus Guide.

For both students and faculty, Levine is committed to supporting individual choices regarding returning to campus. We have made significant investments in technology upgrades to provide faculty with flexibility, enabling them to move between live and virtual instruction easily from on-campus studios. Faculty and students may choose to return to campus for all or some of their private lessons. The Virtual Campus will remain an option for anyone not ready to return in-person or for unvaccinated, eligible students.

Vaccination Requirements

Levine is implementing a vaccination requirement for eligible students and employees who wish to be on-campus. Appropriate exemptions for medical and religious reasons will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Students below the requirement ages outlined below are permitted on campus but are asked to comply with additional masking and distancing protocols.

June 15: Proof of vaccination required for staff and faculty for on-campus access
June 28: Proof of vaccination required for students 16+ for on-campus access
September 7: Proof of vaccination required for students 12+ for on-campus access

Requirements for newly eligible age groups will be announced on a rolling basis.

AUXS Safety App

To make daily symptom checking and approvals for on-campus activities quick and easy, Levine will be using the AUXS Safety App. As you register for on-campus activities, you will be sent an invitation from AUXS to activate your account. This app will be used each morning of your planned visit to campus. Those receiving a Green Pass will show it to front desk staff at arrival; those not cleared will be contacted by a member of our campus staff for immediate follow-up. Please be aware that Strathmore and THEARC have additional screening protocols for building access. Instructions for providing proof of vaccination or requesting an exemption will follow.

Our tent is up!

We are eager to welcome students back this summer and want to assure you that any instruction we offer will ensure protecting the health and safety of our students and faculty. At our DC Campus: NW on Upton Street, we plan to utilize our outdoor spaces as much as possible and will use this newly tented area of our back parking lot to serve that objective.


I would like to continue lessons online, is that possible?
Yes! Our studying through our Virtual Campus will remain an option moving forward. Check out our tips for Online Learning.

We are concerned about being exposed to the coronavirus. How are you ensuring that your faculty and staff do not have the virus?
Levine is closely following all of the guidelines set in place by CDC and are asking faculty and staff to notify us immediately if they experience symptoms. We, and are partners, are also taking enhanced measures to diligently clean and disinfect our campuses on a frequent basis. In addition, we have implemented a vaccine requirement for eligible students and employees. View our Return to Campus Guide for more safety protocols.
