Explore Zoom Video Conferencing

Online lessons are available to students via Zoom, the leader in modern video communications. Easy to use and reliable, Zoom is available to download for free on your PC/Mac or by using a dedicated app for iOS or Android.

All you need is a PC/Mac, tablet, or mobile device with microphone & speakers (here are some recommendations on external options if needed: microphone webcam), and a high quality internet connection. Test your internet connection to ensure best results.



Tips for Best Results

  • Use a wired external microphone, if at all possible:
    • If not, stand 3-5 feet AWAY from the microphone and point off to the side of the microphone.
    • Please do not play directly at the microphone. Angle your sound off to the right or the left of the mic.
  • Use headphones or earbuds (instead of computer or smartphone speakers) during your lesson.
  • Close all applications outside of Zoom.
  • Use a wired internet connection, if possible, or reduce bandwidth usage on your network: turn off gaming systems, video streaming, and other devices.
