On-Line Guitar Lessons

Guitar Lessons with SKYPE

As you probably already know, SKYPE is a very popular video conferencing tool.  From simple “phone like but with a face” chats to all out global business conferencing, SKPYE is a popular video tool.

At Dempster Guitar Studio we offer online SKYPE guitar lessons for those students who are unable to attend in-person lessons.  The convenience for the student is obvious- your guitar lesson is brought to you in your own home. For the teacher, it’s simply wonderful to extend the reach of teaching guitar to a global audience.

If you are interested in SKYPE lessons, there are a few things you need to be aware of:

  1. You’ll need a computer with an internet speed of at least 0.5 MB upload and 1MB download speed.  If you are unsure of your computer’s internet speed you can test it out at Speedtest.net
  2. SKYPE lessons obviously require both audio and video capabilities so you’ll need a microphone and a webcam.  The good news is that most laptops and desktop computers today already have these components built into them (YES! it wasn’t always so!).  And these built-ins are fine for SKYPE guitar lessons.  You can always get fancy gear later on if you want.
  3. With any video conferencing platform, there is currently a slight delay in both the audio and video signals between student and teacher.  One consequence of this signal delay is the you and I cannot play guitar TOGETHER at the same time- in otherwards we can’t JAM! So expect a lot of demonstration from me and then you demonstrating it back.  We still manage to accomplish a lot just without the joy of jamming.
  4. You may already be familiar with this one, but you’ll have to adjust the timing of your discussion.  The inherent delay mentioned above is again at work and it can interrupt the natural flow of a two-way discussion.  All we really need to do is be aware of this.
