Here are some tips that will help you to optimize your online lesson experience:

  • If possible, use a laptop instead of a tablet or phone.  If a laptop is not an option, a tablet or phone will still work.

  • Close other tabs and windows during the lesson.  This will minimize any delay in audio/ video.

  • For piano, the best angle will be to the side of the keyboard so that a side profile of the student as well as the keys are visible

  • For all other instruments, place the device you are using so that the camera is at eye level and shows the upper body of the student plus some a few feet of distance on each side.

  • Do not place the device so that it looks up to the student- We don’t need to see up noses!


Using Zoom:

  • The zoom app can be downloaded from the apple store if you are using an apple product.  

  • Zoom for desktop is very simple to use.  You may be asked to download a simple plugin when  you launch the lesson link.
