Technical Requirements

  • A strong internet connection: ideally a broadband connection with a recommended minimum download and upload speed of 10 Mps.  The higher the bandwidth, the more stable the audio and video connection. You can test your network bandwidth at speedtest.net

  • The built-in speakers and microphone on your device will suffice. For higher quality, I recommend an external microphone and a professional headset or external speaker.

  • For very advanced students, I recommend recording and sending a video of your performance prior to the lessons to ensure that subtleties are not lost. If you are interested in investing in higher quality equipment, I will be able to suggest options depending on your budget and individual needs.

  • I recommend using zoom (where we can offer multiple camera angles and screen-share amongst many other functions), but are able to teach via other platforms such as Skype and Facetime.
