Skype is very easy to use. After a few quick steps you’ll be ready for your first online/Skype piano lesson. As simple as making a phone call, Skype video calls provide everything we need for successful online piano lessons.
Here are the steps you can take to get set up for online/Skype piano lessons:
Download Skype: It’s free! Just visit the Skype website to download the software you need for online/Skype piano lessons.
Create a Skype account: This is free too! You can sign up on the Skype website. Just provide your name, e-mail address, country, and language, and select a user name and password.
Test your video: Many computers now come with built-in cameras and microphones. It’s also possible to buy external cameras and microphones, to plug into your computer. Open Skype on your computer, sign in, go to “Preferences”, and select “Audio/Video” to make sure that your equipment is working. If you’ve never used Skype before, try a video call with a friend or family member to see what it’s like.
