So you’re interested in online guitar lessons, but you’re thinking “what do I need?”. Not sure if you have the equipment or technical know how to make it work? Let us talk you through it!
First step, you will need these 3 things:
1. Good and reliable internet connection
2. Computer with a webcam
3. Zoom account
Once you have those 3 things you are good to go, but the most important is a good and reliable internet connection, this cannot be overstated. It will help you make the most of your online guitar lessons and will solve almost all technical issues.
All our tutors have spent a great deal of time learning and investing in advanced equipment and webinar tricks which means you will always be able to see and hear them clearly, receive professional materials and play together. However, a lot of this requires specialist knowledge so it’s unlikely students will be able to replicate this, but here are another 3 basic things you can do to really make the most of your lessons:
1. Sit with the light facing you. Good light can make even the most basic webcam crystal clear.
2. Have a quiet place to take the lesson so you can hear your tutor and enjoy the lesson without interruption.
3. Make sure you have the ability to play MP3s, download PDF files and have access to a tuner and metronome.
You’re Ready To Start
If you follow these steps you can expect really great guitar tuition in the comfort and convenience of your own home. If you have any concerns about specific technical aspects please get in touch and we can talk you through them personally.
