Diana has been giving very successful lessons over the Internet for more than seven years. While it is always better to have lessons "in-person", this technology has helped students living in more isolated areas to continue with regular lessons despite distance and weather.
The Internet lessons are supplemented with occasional in-person lessons, especially during the period of setting posture. It is important for Diana to check out the cello set-up to ensure ease of playing. Younger students have in-person lessons more often, because the live sound is so influencing. The lessons for younger children are longer than in-person lessons initially, to have time for parent to teacher conversation, to explain directions and answer questions thoroughly.
A fast Internet connection with lots of upload capability is needed. A large screen and good speakers help make the experience more satisfactory. Skype, iChat or AIM Messnger can be used.
