Here's my student Laddie taking his lesson. He's doing really great! I'm having a great time teaching Laddie online. We're making progress together!
Hey all, are suggestions and tips I've found to come in handy for our online lessons.
1. Charge your devices fully before the lesson. Our lessons will eat up a lot of battery power on your device.
Pro tip: Pick up a USB extension cable from Monoprice.com. You can charge from your wall outlet at a distance while also doing the lesson.
2. If you're using Lightening-only earbuds/phones, make sure they are long enough so you can position your phone far enough away from the camera.
Pro Tip: Pick up a male-to-female extension cable from Amazon. Try for a 6 foot or 10 foot cable.
3. You can use bluetooth headphones during the lesson but I don't recommend it. They may cause extra sound delay and interference during the lesson.
Pro Tip: Use a wired set of headphones where the cable is long enough and goes over the ears (provides more sound isolation)
I'll post more suggestions as I think of them. Happy Practicing.
I will be teaching online from this point forward! Here's how to sign up and receive lessons:
1. Fill out the contact form on the website.
2. We agree to a lesson time and payment method.
2. Download the Zoom conferencing app on to your laptop or device. iOS and Android fully compatible.
3. The version of Zoom that we will use is FREE. You just need to create an account.
3. At the time of the lesson, have your device ready and with a good connection. You will need headphones or earbuds.
4. We do the lesson interactively thru the Zoom app.
Zoom app for iOS
Zoom app for Android
Zoom for PC/Mac
I truly look forward to continuing our lessons and meeting up with new students!!
I hope this post finds you all safe and taking good precautions during this very critical time.
Following the CDC, State, and US Gov't recommendations, I will be moving all of our lessons to online format only.
This includes new and existing signups, and will stay this way until things return to "normal."
I am doing research right now to get a proper interactive format happening and hope to be up and running as soon as possible. Hopefully this week. I will provide updates.
What you will likely need for online lessons is:
1. Laptop, phone, or tablet with wifi.
3. PDF reader - for lessons material and log sheets etc..
4. Drums or drumpad, sticks, and a music stand.
Hope this helps. Take care and reach out to your friends, family, and loved ones. Wash your hands. Hang in there. We're gonna make it. -RK
