Music lessons via Skype

Posted in News on February 9, 2011 by mezzoforteband

With the help of the internet and freely available software like Skype, geographical distance is no longer the obstacle it used to be. People can interact and share information through a personal conversation wherever they are. This opens up a unique opportunity for students and teachers around the globe.

For a Skype lesson, all you need to do is set up a computer (equipped with Skype, a webcam and a microphone) close to your instrument.  Your teacher has his instrument on the other end. You can ask any questions you like, either specifically about the music of Mezzoforte or general questions about music. In some cases your teacher may have some relevant written material which will be sent via e-mail.
