Safety Procedures

Here’s what we’re doing in our store to keep you and our team healthy:

Employee Training and Support
We have developed personal prevention procedures and protocol to ensure all employees understand and are well-versed in the guidelines and best practices for maintaining their health. 

Our store is cleaned by a professional cleaning service multiple times per week. In addition, we are cleaning and disinfecting our sales floor, POS stations, and other high-touch areas throughout the day and after each use.

We will be washing our hands frequently, including after every interaction with a customer, delivery provider or other team member. Every team member, including Repair Shop, has been provided with hand sanitizer, tissues and disinfectant for their POS station and supplies are available throughout the store for customer use.  

Personal Protective Gear
Wearing protective masks within our store is mandatory.  Employees have been provided with a supply of cloth masks.  Disposable masks are available to customers, as are protective gloves, if desired.

Social Distancing
Maintaining a distance of 6 feet is required of our team and our customers at all times and we have organized our store and have implemented floor markers to make it easier to comply.

Available by Phone or Email
In case you do not want to or cannot travel, or you want to arrange for curbside pick up in advance, there are several ways to reach us.  We have staff dedicated to answering the telephone 415-479-3112 during our normal business hours to answer questions about inventory availability or to assist you with a purchase or rental.  You can also browse our website and place an online order, or rent an instrument online, or use our contact form for any other questions or inquiries.

Instrument Handling
If you’re interested in trying an instrument before you purchase it, a team member, following safety protocol, will pull the instrument for you, disinfect it before handing it over, and again before returning it to the display wall or case.  If you do not want to try the instrument prior to purchase, we have a generous return policy that will allow you to isolate the instrument at home before play testing.

Repair Shop
Our Repair Shop is open and technicians are available; however, to maintain social distancing the back of our store is currently not accessible to customers. This includes the Repair Shop, restrooms and studios.  Our technicians will be more than happy to come up front to consult as needed. 


School Music Program Rental Customers

In-Store Studios and Music Lessons

Our studios are closed to teachers and students until further notice.  However, most of our teachers are offering remote/video conference lessons.  Please check our teacher directory for availability.

To Our Valued Customers,

Despite all the uncertainty, one thing remains unchanged and that is our shared love of music. In fact, we all need music now more than ever. Since our inception, in 1976, The Magic Flute has remained focused on supporting our vibrant music community, especially the school music programs and all the young players as they are the future.

We thank you for your continued support.
