For the past 3-4 years I have been teaching online lessons using Skype. It has been working great so far. It is amazing that you can sit down at your computer and have an in-person lesson with someone on the other side of the world. Once in awhile I have run into problems with the speed of the connection slowing down, the video freezing or a session getting dropped but so far 99% of the time it has worked great.
The way Skype works is that you need a computer with a video camera, mic, the skype software (this is free) and a high speed internet connection. You create a username on Skype for yourself. After you purchase a lesson or number of lessons, you can email me to set up a time and give me your Skype username. At the time of your lesson I will call you on Skype using your username and when you pick up we can see each other and talk just like an in-person lesson,
During a typical skype lesson, I will ask you to play something that you feel comfortable with and then give you feedback on what I think. If you are an ongoing student of mine, I will ask you to demonstrate what you have been working on since the last lesson. Skype makes it easy to see what you are doing and how you are playing. I can also demonstrate things and you can see them firsthand also. It’s like we are in the same room with one another.
You can take a lesson once a week or once a month or whenever you feel the urge just email me. If you are interested feel free to contact me and we can try to set something up during a time that works for the both of us.
I only teach skype lessons Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm EST. (You can see the EST time here to figure out the relationship to your own time zone)
