Virtual Music Lessons

Saturday, February 17, 2024 by Elana Segal | Music Lessons

There are many reasons a music lesson might be moved to Zoom, including illness and inclement weather. 

Here are some tips for having the best virtual lesson experience:

  • Position your laptop/tablet so your instrument is visible
  • Update the Zoom app regularly 
  • Make sure your device is charged 
  • Find a quite space with a strong WiFi signal 

Zoom Audio Configuration: 

See photos bellow. iPads/tablets will only need to complete steps 1-2, students using a computer/laptop will need to complete steps 1-3.

  1. Open "audio settings"
  2. Click "Enable Original Audio" or "Original Sound for Musicians"
  3. Uncheck "Automatically adjust microphone volume"
  4. If you are using headphones, make sure to adjust the speaker and input settings from the "audio settings" window
