Online Zoom Skype , Facetime Guitar Lessons
HOW ONLINE REMOTE LESSONS WORK
Live one-on-one video guitar lessons let you learn from a qualified teacher from the comfort of your own home. By using a tablet, computer or TV we can connect from any location in the world. The main difference from traditional lessons is that I am not in the same room with you however I can show you how I am holding my guitar, and then I can see how you are holding yours and discuss this.
Because of audio delays and latency we can’t both play at the same time but we can easily work around this by taking turns playing and communicating. I can also send you mp3 audio tracks and sheet music as needed and plan what you need to work on in your practice time.
My Zoom lessons are very secure and will not be interrupted- the link I send you for the meeting is password protected and I use a “Zoom waiting room”.
This means even if someone gets the link somehow, they can’t enter the meeting unless I let them in.
I have found that Zoom has superior audio/video quality as well as some great tools like file sharing, audio sharing, screen sharing etc.
Now you can have lessons on your schedule regardless of your location.
*Travel is no longer a barrier
*Save Time On Travelling To Lessons
Live one on one online guitar lessons are great for people unable to find a guitar teacher in their local area.
They also give you flexibility over when you want to learn.
Want to learn at 1:00am? It would be pretty hard to find a tutor locally wanting to teach at that time but it’s very likely somebody on the other side of the planet will be able to teach you.
Depending on where you are located this time difference can be an advantage.

Can one on one online Guitar Lessons be better than a video lesson?
Video lessons can be great depending on who makes them – you can waste hours on YouTube going from one video to the next . The major difference is you can interact, ask questions, receive answers and have someone watch your technique and offer advice on how to improve.
The Biggest Advantage:
Avoid bad habits- and Avoid Practicing Making Mistakes !
Video lessons just let you watch someone else.
Live one on one online Guitar Lessons can be customized to your style and what you want to learn!

7. Be ready 5 minutes before our scheduled lesson.
8. Set up your camera so I can see your left hand in the video. Avoid having a window or bright lights behind you. Use front lighting so your face and guitar are clear in the video.
9. Download the Tempo Metronome App. This is a great practice tool and will help you develop a good sense of timing.

What You Will Need
*A computer, tablet, mobile phone, or TV with a webcam and a microphone.
These can be purchased separately if they are not built in.
*High speed internet connection.
*Headphones- it is best to wear headphones for best audio quality. Otherwise you will get a feedback loop
from the audio coming out of your speakers and going back into the microphone.
All sessions must be paid for up-front, via PayPal, before Paul can book you in. On initial enquiry, Paul will ask you for preferred dates and times, and once settled upon, full payment guarantees the slot.
If payment is not made 48 hours prior to the session, Paul cannot guarantee that you will get it.
Once booked you’ll receive Pauls Zoom address and you will be added to his Zoom contacts.
HOW MANY LESSONS WILL I NEED ?
Many students sign up for a complete course of lessons whereas some might just want help with a specific aspect of their playing.
It’s really up to you to set the pace and the number of sessions.
