2 Options

Tech Check

Do you need a first time walk-through/need a refresher on using your electronic devices/acquired a new device for lessons? I offer free “Tech Checks” where I will be available via phone, text and Zoom to help you dial in your set up from your desired lesson area. Please visit my "Commonly Asked Questions" page for a description of the items you will need for online lessons. You can also text/email/add in the ‘Appointment Notes’ when you book your Tech Check that you would like to request a helpful checklist to refer to for setting up for online lessons. As far as difficulty goes, I like to compare it to making Mac n’ Cheese; you’ll need a few things, and it takes a few tries to master, but you’ll memorize the recipe after a few tries & be a pro in no time! For clarification, this is not a lesson where we will go over anything musical; this time is strictly for setting up electronic equipment so that you will be fully prepared for your actual lesson. They are half hour segments, but we may not need the full 30 minutes. If you feel you need more time than that, please contact me via phone & we will discuss options.
