What you need to know
What Will I Need For My Lesson?
Stable Internet Connection
A computer or tablet with a camera (can be inbuilt or a webcam).
Headphones with an inbuilt microphone are helpful, ie. Apple earphones or something similar. If you don’t have these, that’s okay, as long as we can hear each other well from the inbuilt speakers & microphone on your device.
A separate device to play your backing tracks, eg a phone with a Bluetooth speaker. Why a separate device? Zoom calls tend to cut out the sound of your voice when the backing track is played through the same device.
Any sheet music or lyric materials used in lessons.
Some water ready in case you need it
What Do I Wear?
Keep dress code as if you were coming for a face to face lesson. Casual, but keeping the bar set at a professional level.
Any Location Tips?
Keep your lesson environment in mind e.g. a quiet place & If possible, its preferred if students are not in their bedroom for professional practice reasons.
Make sure that you can be seen well from your webcam, checking posture is an important part of lessons for the teacher.
