Continuing Learning Online:
Live Virtual Lessons via
Lynn continues to offer 1-on-1 lessons through Zoom, the most reliable platform for private teachers giving online instruction.
I like Zoom because only I, as "Host," need to have an account, and students don't need to download the program, or have any additional equipment other than a computer or phone.
The way it works: When I schedule a lesson with a student, I'll create a Zoom "meeting," and email you an "invitation" with a link to join it at the appointed time. When your lesson time comes up, you just click the link.

Studio Class participation via
VioLynn Studio uses Flipgrid as its platform for students (and families) to stay in touch, communicate, and play for each other. My studio has bonded together as a wonderful group, and this is a way for us to actively continue supporting each other's violin progress.
I like this app because it's private - no one else on the internet can see our postings (unless we mutually choose to invite guests to a "topic," such as our Recital performances). Students don't need to have an email address or Facebook account, but will access postings through a confidential access code, which I generate and email to each of you).
The way it works: From Flipgrid, I'll post "topics" for students in the class to respond to. Students then record and upload short videos, which I (and the rest of the class) can view and respond to. We may also make use of these videos during our Zoom lessons.
They say it's simple - which probably means it will be easy for students (at least those younger than 35), but challenging for me!
