Things to check:

  • Can you hear us?
  • Can we hear you?

Check that your audio works – test your microphone.  During classes your mic won’t be as important, but during times when we have time for questions and answers, we’ll call on you to unmute yourself so you can ask your questions. So make sure it’s working for class and if you are going to take part in the jams or the student concert.

If available, a computer hard-wired rather than on wifi is better. But if wifi is your only option  – use it! We’ll still see you and hear you, and if it skips or lags or…, just keep going.

If it completely stops working, we’ll move on and come back to you!

If you’re signing up to play during the open mic/student concert during an online music event, ensure you have “Original Sound” enabled.

Where is that setting in Zoom?
