How do these online classes work?

Good question!  If you’ve never taken an online class before, it can seem impossible compared to an in-person workshop or private lesson.  But it works!  

Unlike our in-person workshop classes, you will be logged into a website in a virtual classroom with the teacher, the class host, and anywhere from 5 to 50 fellow students - you will be a square on "The Brady Bunch" or "Hollywood Squares"!  You can see and hear, just like in an in-person class - except you didn't have to drag your instruments across town (or the country) to get there!  You can ask the teacher a question by typing it into the chat feature, and you can say a quick "hi" to individual friends you see using this same feature before class starts.  You can even get the handouts digitally in advance, so you can look them over and practice.  

One limitation of this is a slight time delay between participants, very much like a long-distance satellite call from the 70's.  It's really just a split second, but it makes it hard to play in rhythm as a group.  Therefore, all students will be muted during most of the class, unless the teacher asks for a volunteer or calls for questions. When you are muted, you will hear only the teacher; you can play along with the teacher this way, and the delay won't be a problem.  Many people find this incredibly liberating!  

We have made up some guides for how to use this website and join the right class, how to mute yourself, and so forth so that you can have the best experience.  We look forward to making music with you in a Zoom window at Winds and Waves
