Online Lessons

Setup for Online Lessons
Several people concerned about the Corona virus have asked if they can switch to online lessons until the danger is past and I said of course! If you would like to switch to online lessons you can pay me by mailing me a check or by PayPal there is a 4.5% charge in addition to the regular fee if you use PayPal so you may just want to mail me a check

For online lessons you have a choice of keeping your current time slot or switching to a morning slot. If you check the calendar on my website you will see that I have slots open between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Most people already have what they need to set up for online lessons: a laptop or desktop computer with a pre-installed or external webcam and microphone.  I use SLACK software.  You can also use the Slack app on your phone or iPad.  The quality of the transmission will be determined by your connection speed.  I recommend switching to Comcast Business as they will provide you with a battery backup system that will give you up to 10 hours of internet connectivity should your power go out for some reason.

Current students should already be enrolled in Slack.  If you don't have an invitation to join, contact me and I'll send you a link.  It's Free!
