Video Exchange Lessons
If your internet connection is not stable enough for video chat lessons, or if your scheduled doesn't allow for you to have a lesson at the same time every week, video exchange lessons are an alternative that will allow you to learn entirely on your own time but still receive feedback from an instructor. Video exchange lessons are $20 each. You send a video to your instructor, and you receive a video in response with feedback and new assignments.
You will need a device that records video. You need to be able to set it up so that your instructor can see all of the instrument as well as your hands, arms, and face at all times. The type of device you use might matter, depending on what sort of surface you put it on and what instrument you are playing. For example, if you have to stand to play your instrument, a table like the one in the pictures above won't work because it isn't tall enough unless you are standing across the room, where your instructor will not be able to get a good view. A taller table or a tablet or phone placed on a music stand would be a better solution in that case. Check the quality of the built-in microphone on your device if you are using a laptop or desktop computer. Often, plugging in even a relatively inexpensive microphone will get better sound quality than the built-in microphones that are standard on some devices.
