Tips For Great Lessons

Choose a quiet room with few distractions. Minimizing ambient noise, like air conditioning or fans, will result in clearer audio. Spaces with soft, sound-absorbing elements like upholstered furniture and carpet also help with audio clarity. Lessons must take place on a Zoom-enabled device with reliable internet access. Below are Zoom settings that optimize audio for music lessons. 


We recommend using an external microphone and headphones or earbuds for your lessons. If you have questions about your equipment configuration to improve remote learning, please email support@curtis.edu.
