Why online lessons?
Taking classes, especially vocal/acting lessons is very personal. I found students feel more comfortable in their own space and allow themselves to “let go” and explore their sound. With the proper equipment, your lesson will be clear and easily heard. You can record ALL lessons so that you can listen back and hear your improvement. Zoom allows you to record and view back immediately after our session. Click here for more information.
FACT: Online classes are now commonplace at colleges and universities. Some classes required for graduation are only available online.
What kind of webcam should I get?
Technology has definitely come a long way. In my experience, the higher priced the webcam, the better image you will have! You must also remember how old and what type of computer you have will play an important part as well. I use Skype, Google Hangout or Facetime because they are the most reliable free services out right now. Skype and Hangout work with both PC and Mac operating systems.
Creating a User Name
There is no need to create a Zoom profile, however, in order to record, you will need one.
Download Zoom here.
Simply create a Skype user name and connect with me. You can have as many Skype accounts as you want so save your zany user names for your friends, but please use one that I will recognize for your lessons.
