Hi again, Musikhaus parents and students! I will no longer send you Zoom links for piano lessons. It’s much simpler for you to set up a free basic account at https://zoom.us/ and “Join” me on Zoom by inputting my Personal Meeting ID. That’s what I’ll be sending you this week, and you’ll join all lessons with it even when we reschedule. Use a desktop, laptop or tablet for the lesson so the screen is big enough to see what I am doing. Online piano lessons are getting better day by day!
I will text you Zoom links for our online piano lessons this week. You don’t need a Zoom account, just a device (or two) that has Internet, microphone, speakers, and camera.
The Skype-MyMusicStaff integration didn’t work out in test calls yesterday afternoon.
Additionally I’m having trouble with more emails than usual not being delivered, even after carefully going through the configurations yesterday morning. That’s why I’m posting about what’s going on here, on the Musikhaus Piano Lessons Facebook page, and the musikhaus.mymusicstaff.com portal.
All Musikhaus piano lessons will be conducted online at their previously scheduled times during the week of March 16 — no in-person lessons.
This STRONG strategy that encourages people to stay home in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, out of LOVE for all our neighbors, including the most vulnerable, is called social distancing. Area school districts and many other organizations are adopting it. Social distancing is most effective at slowing the spread of a pandemic when practiced in lockstep and SOLIDARITY with the larger community! See www.ccisd.net/covid-19 .
Music Moves for Piano student Paden, age 6, already has his first student: Mom! He learned the part Mom is playing, taught himself his part and then taught his mom the first part. Keyboard Games are fun at any age, but I only have lesson times left for 4-8 year-olds!
