Continuing Learning Online:
Live Virtual Lessons via
I continue to offer 1-on-1 lessons through Zoom, the most reliable platform for private teachers giving online instruction.
I like Zoom because students don't need to have an account, download the program, or have additional equipment, other than a computer or phone.
The way it works: I schedule a lesson for a student, by creating create a Zoom "meeting," then email you an "invitation" with a link to join. When your lesson time comes up, you simply click the link. The same link is used for all "recurring" lessons
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 post "topics" for students in the class to respond to. Students go to my Flipgrid "classroom" flipgrid.com/violynn, enter their ID, and record short videos. We then can view and respond to these videos within lessons and among each other.
