How Skype Lessons Work Live one-on-one video lessons let you learn from your home by using a tablet, computer or TV. The main difference from traditional lessons is that I am not in the same room with you. This means I can’t physically move your hand into the right position. But I can show you how I am holding my guitar, and then I can see how you are holding yours and discuss this. Because of how Skype works we can’t both play at the same time. Skype noise cancellation limits 2 way audio transmissions. But we can easily work around this by taking turns playing and I can send you mp3 audio tracks as needed.
I have had great success with live one-on-one video lessons via Skype.Now you can have lessons on your schedule regardless of your location. You will receive the instruction you need to rock out in the comfort of your own home, hotel, or anywhere in the world! *Travel is no longer a barrier to your musical career! *Bragging rights for being super tech-savvy! Skype guitar lessons are great for people unable to find a guitar teacher in their local area. Skype guitar lessons also give you flexibility over when you want to learn. Want to learn at 1:00am? It would be pretty hard to find a tutor locally wanting to teach at that time but it’s very likely somebody on the other side of the planet will be able to teach you. Depending on where you are located this time difference can be an advantage.
Why Skype Lessons are better than a video lesson. You can interact, ask questions, receive answers and have someone watch your technique and offer advice on how to improve. Avoid bad habits. Video lessons just let you watch someone else. Skype lessons can be customized to your style and what you want to learn!
What You Will Need *A computer, tablet or TV with a webcam and a microphone. These can be purchased separately if they are not built in. *High speed internet connection. *Headphones- it is best to wear headphones for best audio quality. Otherwise you will get a feedback loop from the audio coming out of your speakers and going back into the microphone.
