Frequently asked questions
How does my child login to their lessons?

firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send it through to you!
Do I need a webcam?
For group lessons it is not required.
The minimum requirements for a student to join one of our group lessons are an internet connection, computer with speakers and a microphone. The webcam is optional. Your child will still be able to see and interact with our Teacher and participate in the activities and quizzes! Rember you can also use the chat option to answer questions for the teacher to see!
For 1 on 1 lesson it is highly recommended.
To get the most out of our 1 on 1 lessons we recommend you use a webcam to enable our instructors to coach them on their instrument. For best results we ask that the camera is positioned so that the instrument can be seen by the instructor.
Will my child require their instrument?
For Group Lessons, they will not require their instrument.
You just need a quiet space for them to watch and interact with the lessons.
For 1-1 Lessons, their instruments are required.
Ideally the camera and microphone should be positioned close to the instrument so the instructor is able to see how their student is playing their instrument.
Does my child require an email address to register an account?
It is not required, you can use your own - however, if you have two children that would like to access the Learning Materials, Forum Posts and other class activities, they will need a seperate email for their account to be able to access their personal profile.
Many students have email accounts these days that they can use, or you can easily set up a free Google Gmail account for them which allows some parently oversight and control over the account.
What platform are you using to deliver the lessons?
We use Zoom Meetings!
There is no installation required, just click and go! If you need to troubleshoot anything please

Do I need headphones?
If you have headphones, use them! Headphones are great to work with our group or 1-1 lessons as the children can really focus on the class and not get distracted by other things happening in the house. If headphones aren’t an option, we encourage all parents to help teach their child how to use the mute/unmute button (the one that looks like a microphone) so throughout the class, they can mute themselves in order to focus, or unmute when everyone needs to interact with the teacher.
What platform do you use for online classes?
We use Zoom! We have found this the best platform for lessons as the teacher can see all student in the class, have access to present our curriculum to them on the screen
What time zone are the lesson times listed in?
All lesson times are listed in Sydney time by default.
