When i first started offering Guitar lessons online, the main goal was to offer the same style of lesson that i offer in the classroom. I have always brought a high level of technology into my classroom lessons so i didn't want to lose any of that when teaching through Skype. The first item i wanted to ensure was quality of picture. All my cameras are HD quality. Secondly, I didn't want a student not being able to see what i was actually playing on the guitar. I have seen other lessons on Skype and i didn't like the idea of me having to wave my guitar infront of the camera so a student can actually see where my fingers are on the fret board. So i decided to operate with two cameras, one looks at me talking the second is focused in close up detail looking at the fret board. This now allows me to to talk and let the student see what i am doing on the guitar at the same time. Next was sound quality. I looked at various methods of delivering quality audio for my lessons. After much research and field testing i believe from the positive comments from students that i have a achieved this. In my classroom lessons i like t be able to play backing tracks and also use information from youtube. So this was another essential element that i had to bring to the online sessions. I wanted t ensure the picture and audio quality was of a high standard. Through clever use of software and routing this is now a integral part of my lessons. To help students learn songs i am a big fan of Guitar Pro 6, using the same methods i adopted for Youtube I can bring the user interface from Guitar Pro right to the students screen quickly and play the audio track directly to them. My system allows me to zoom in and out of a particular section and highlight and particular section that i want to cover. Something that i believe is unique to my Skype lessons.
