I'm excited to begin offering violin and viola lessons via Skype! The audio and video technology in this great tool has progressed to the point where it's almost as good as being in the same room with me!
Now those of you travelling from far away can save money on gas, and, more importantly, spend less time in the car...and more time practicing!
A few details:
- Only students in Suzuki Book II and later may take Skype lessons.
- You must have a computer with a good internet connection and a video camera. Decent speakers are also helpful.
- Skype lessons are for a minimum of 45 minutes.
- Students that study primarily via Skype will be required to come in for an in-person lesson periodically (to be decided by me in consulation with the student and parent).
To setup Skype, follow these instructions:
- Click here to download Skype for your system
- Install Skype to your computer.
- Add travis.maril as a contact
- From the "Contacts" screen, call the "Skype Test Call" to make sure that your sound is working properly
- I will Skype call you at the appointed time
Please contact me if you have any questions.
