Online Lessons

These lessons are suitable for adults, ad-hoc lessons, or taster lessons. Lessons will take place using an online platform called Zoom. This offers simultaneous multi-cam viewing and high-quality audio, which greatly enhances the online teaching process. You can either download their app or use it directly on your browser. Zoom help video is here. As a minimum, you will need a laptop or tablet with a built-in working webcam, microphone, and speakers as well as a good internet connection. To get the most out of lessons, a separate webcam, and microphone are beneficial but not essential. Lessons can be booked online by scheduling an appointment(s).
