Online & Outdoor Lessons

We are proud to offer Online & Outdoor Lessons!

Outdoor Academy:

With the current Covid-19 protocols in place for physical distancing, we feel the safest way to work with our students is to continue to teach online with the option to attend outdoor lessons on beautiful days.

Outdoor lessons

This initiative is optional. All students have the choice of participating in outdoor lessons or continue to learn solely online.  All equipment will be sterilized between lessons and hand sanitizer will be on hand for use by students and teachers at the start of each lesson. The physical distance of 6 feet or more will be maintained.  Teachers can wear face masks at the request of their students (and vice versa).

In case of inclement weather, students will be notified by 8:00 am on the day of their lesson to resume their lessons at their regular time on Zoom.

Online lessons

 

Please be sure to follow the following steps in order to ensure a successful online lesson:

1. Ocean Opus Teachers teach online lessons on Zoom.  Please download the Zoom app well before your first lesson.  Your teacher will send you your Zoom meeting ID and password once your lesson time is agreed upon. 

 

2. Music resources, lesson notes, and practice instructions will be shared through Evernote.  Please be sure to download the app before your first online lesson starts.  

3.  Be ready for the lesson.

  • Tune your instrument.

  • Have all of your lesson materials in front of you.

  • Check your email to see if there are any special instructions from your teacher. 

4.  Find that perfect camera angle before you start.  Your teacher should be able to see your hands and face in the same shot.  - This may require some creative propping up of your camera. 

5.  Your teacher will meet you in your Zoom meeting room at the start of your lesson.
