Live Online Lessons

Private lessons catered to YOU from the convenience of your home! Online lessons work just like a face to face lesson. We set goals and work to achieve them. I can see and hear you and you can see and hear me in HD 1080P. Isn't technology wonderful?

Rates

Payment

I can take all major credit cards during your lesson or PayPal invoice you. Both options afford you security over your transactions. You may also send a personal check through the mail if you prefer.

What You’ll Need

Software

I use Skype, FaceTime, FaceBook Messenger Calls, and Google Hangouts. We’ll confirm which method you prefer when we exchange emails. We just set up a time and I call you when it’s your lesson time. Easy!

You also need a decent internet connection. If you have a dial up modem, these probably aren’t a good idea. Otherwise, you’ll be fine.

Optional Hardware

You can use your cellphone, an iPad or Table, or even your computer. Obviously, the bigger the better for seeing what I demonstrate, but my clients use any and all of these.

If using a tablet or phone, I highly recommend these gooseneck phone/tablet holders. They hook on just about anything and easily let you move your device from watching me to showing me using your camera. And they’re quite affordable!

If using a webcam or a camera on a microphone stand, I like this product. It lets you turn your mic stand into a camera holder.

Video Camera/Digital Recorder Adapter (https://amzn.to/2DY7hMt)

Web Camera

Optional but highly recommended. These give you better flexibility during calls so I can see your technique better.

Good: Widescreen HD Webcam (https://amzn.to/2G0YpIs)

Better: HD Pro Webcam (https://amzn.to/2Jdoguw)

Note: because these are high def, they take up more band width and your video quality may suffer if you have a slower internet speed.
