WE OFFER ON-LINE VOICE AND MUSIC LESSONS - OR, IN STUDIO FOR THOSE IN DAYTON, OH AREA. HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR ON-LINE LESSONS.
Regarding the Technical Aspect...you only need a few things, and you may already have them all.
1. A somewhat recent computer or tablet – anything from the past 5 - 8 years should be fine.
2. A webcam and microphone – most computers and tablets now have them built in. If your computer does not have either, you can buy an external camera with mic for around $45. (Best Buy or Amazon).
3. Reliable broadband connection – you should be able to get by on 500 kbps upload and download speeds. You can do a quick test using an online tool like the one at speedtest.net.
4. Additional “nice-to-have” equipment but not required – headphones are handy and they can be an easy way to avoid echo if it occurs. External microphones like those made by Phoenix can solve audio issues but are more expensive and may be needed on both ends of the exchange. These are not necessary, so if you don’t already have them on hand, I’d suggest wait to see if you have any sound issues before investing in them.
A final tip in doing live lessons – shut down any programs running in the background for the duration of your SKYPE SESSION. Doing this helps to improve the overall quality.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
