If you are not able to have clarinet lessons in Boise, online lessons may be the way to go! They are quickly becoming a popular way to learn and are a great way to help you grow if an in person lesson is not an option.
First lesson online? After scheduling a trial lesson, follow these steps. I am happy to help with any snags you may encounter.
1. Download Zoom.
2. Test camera and microphone. Use the trouble shooting feature if you have any trouble. Call your friends or family to really test it out.
3. On lesson day, have your clarinet ready to go! Choose a quiet area of the house. Parents are encouraged to watch and listen to the lesson. Please ask any questions you can over email before the lesson. It is very important that this is as much like an in person lesson as possible and questions are welcomed, but it would be great to have all the preliminary’s out of the way.
Upgrade your equipment! (this is optional but enhances the lesson)
