MrC Music Lessons
LIVE ONLINE Music Lesson INSTRUCTIONS:
1. DEVICE: use a laptop, desktop, tablet, or phone. A bigger screen is more ideal and a newer device makes the audio and video work better.

Piano = set it from the side or maybe even slightly behind and from one side of the keyboard or piano.
Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Trumpet = set it directly in front of the student on a stand or tripod or table where it is even with their eyes or even slightly facing down is better than too low and facing upward.
2. Download the ZOOM app: http://zoom.us
2a. Go under settings under PREFERENCES (which is under zoom.us for mac) > then AUDIO > then ADVANCED
Check mark the box next to “Show in meeting option to enable ORIGINAL SOUND”

Some students have found the use of headphones or earbuds works well in hearing and in relaying their voice and/or instrument, mostly if they are already familiar with using them already.
CALL and RESPONSE
More focus on call and response playing than playing duets and playing in unison. This is already utilized with in-person lessons so most students are already used to this.
