What you will need:
A high-speed internet connection and a way of using a camera and microphone/speakers on your computer, tablet or smartphone to show you doing simple activities like sitting, standing and moving as well as any specialised activities you want to work on like such as playing a musical instrument, working at a computer etc.
You will need to hear me clearly and I will need to see you move about from time to time and hear you clearly.
We can use Skype, Zoom or Facetime for these online lessons. I am still finding out which works best. If you have a preference we can use that, otherwise we will be using Zoom. These online platforms will be free to use for you apart from your own internet fee.
If you are using a tablet or smartphone, it is useful to put it on a stand to easily change it’s camera viewing angle and range. If you have a music stand this works well. I would suggest you practice in advance. Perhaps put your device on selfie, or record video mode and see how much is visible on screen.
It’s very helpful to have as large a space as possible available for inclusion in the camera field so that I can see you move and do activities. It is not essential. There’s a lot can be done just from sitting.
However, as much as is possible, the room lighting should be coming from the ceiling and/or from lights or windows in front of you (thus the window light will be behind the camera). Window openings behind you cause you to be in shadow.
You should be able to hear me clearly. If you need to use external mics in particular, these can cause reverberation so please do a sound check before we meet online.
