Helpful hints for online lessons: 1) Have your camera standing still with a side view of the keys. Some people prop up the camera's in clever ways using shoes, or stands made of legos! 2) Have the camera stand a bit higher than the student's head so the keys and students hands are visible from above. 3) Call Mrs. Farrell on Facetime (678-836-6087) or Skype (natalefarrell2016). 4) Natale can organize Zoom, meetings, too. 5) Have a pencil nearby. 6) Have sticky tabs to put on assigned Homework. 7) Have all the sheet music already printed out and in a binder for easy access. 8) Get a binder that can fold backwards so it can stand up on the piano easily. (Kroger sells the Avery Brand 1.5 inch rings). 9) If a parent can be around for the first few lessons, that would be helpful. 10) Usually only one person can talk and play at a time, so it is important to listen carefully for when the teacher is talking. 11) It is best to be sure the device used to call in does not have any other apps open, because it can slow down the internet. If the lesson gets disconnected, just call back. 12) If using Zoom, put the setting to Original Sound. 13) MOST IMPORTANTLY: Any background sounds get amplified over to the teacher's device, and makes it impossible for the student and teacher to hear. Please have other family members and dogs be quiet during lessons.
