After many enquiries for online fiddle tuition, I'm now
pleased to announce that online one to one tuition is
now available using Skype. Online lessons can never replace
the quality of in-person fiddle lessons. However lessons
via Skype is an excellent way for students to have lessons
with tutors that are not exactly on their door step or
for students in areas when travel options are an issue.
These lessons with Gordon can be tailored to the student's
individual specific requirements. The lessons are available
in 60 minute slots and payable via Paypal.
To take advantage of these lessons, you will need:
So email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for any other information you may require.
- A Skype account - visit http://www.skype.com
to set this up and test if your connection is suitable.
- You'll need a high quality broadband connection,
and a computer with a good microphone and webcam in
order to have a fiddle lesson via Skype.
- A quiet room with good lighting so you won't be
disturbed during the lesson.
- Access to a printer would also be an advantage so
any music requested can be e-mailed prior to the lesson.
- Once payment is received I will e-mail you to arrange a suitable time for your Skype lesson.
I can also advise on webcam and microphone setup so we
can both see and hear each other properly using the system.
- These Skype lessons are not suitable for beginners but
are suitable for lower intermediate abilities up to advanced
level of performance.
