Once assigned, your mentor will e-mail you to introduce themself; all lessons are scheduled via e-mail. All lessons take place on Zoom. Your teacher will e-mail you a Zoom link in advance of your lesson, which is how you will connect. Please be on time.
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. We recommend using an external microphone and headphones or earbuds for your lessons. View Zoom settings that optimize audio for music lessons.
If you have questions about your equipment configuration to improve remote learning, please e-mail email@example.com. We will respond within one business day.
