Getting Started with Skype-
you're new to Skype the first thing youíll need a webcam. Many laptops have webcams/mics built in.
If you'r computer lacks a webcam, see
Webcams on Google.
3. Now download Skype. Itís free, and easy to use. Get Skype. Note: download the free version. Because webcam-to webcam Skype calls are free, you don't need a Skype account for online lessons. Skype accounts are only used for calling telephones with Skype, so don't create an account
4. You'll also need a high speed Internet connection such as DSL or cable (minimum requirements for video conferencing: upload 300 Kb, download 1 Mb). You can test your connection speed at Speedtest.net.
5. Useful accessories for lessons are a music stand, an electronic guitar tuner, (I like the Korg CA-1-instructions for using the tuner are here) and a metronome (the electronic ones are more accurate- the Matrix MR-500 is good one). If you are studying a stringed instrument, make sure you are in tune and up to pitch before your lesson.
6. You can pay online for lessons with most
major credit cards or PayPal. You can also pay by personal check.
