Getting started with technology is easier than ever. To make things even more convenient, our teachers have access to all the specialized software needed to give our students the best experience possible.
WHAT HARDWARE DO I NEED TO START? Many students find that they are happy with a computer, webcam and internet connection. Most recent Macs and PCs have built in webcam devices. If your computer doesn't have one, you can find some reliable, reasonably priced equipment at www.amazon.com or www.bestbuy.com
WHAT SOFTWARE DO I NEED? You will need to download Skype and set up a an account if you don't have one already.
WIRED OR WIRELESS? Wired internet connections provide faster and more reliable connections (that's what our teachers use to ensure reliability for our students), but either can work.
DO YOU RENT OR LEND INSTRUMENTS? No. It is each student/parent's responsibility to rent, borrow or purchase an instrument. Help is always available with an extensive list of world wide luthiers and music shops. Your teacher can recommend a reputable luthier in your area.
WHAT OTHER SUPPLIES WILL I NEED? You'll need some supplementary supplies depending on your instrument (like a bow, rosin, shoulder rest, music stand and pencil). You may need to purchase additional sheet music from time to time throughout your studies.
