Can I teach Skype lessons in My Music Staff?
If your studio offers online lessons, you can video call your students directly from My Music Staff. This feature will require the teacher and student(s) to have a Skype account. The first thing you'll need to do is record your students' Skype usernames in their Student Profile. Click here for instructions.
After you've recorded everyone's Skype usernames, you'll create a new lesson location for your online lessons. Here's how:
You can begin your Skype call by clicking the location from the event details or from your Home Agenda by clicking the "Skype Lesson" button.

You can also teach online group lessons. Just schedule a group lesson as you normally would and be sure to select your Skype lesson location. It's possible to do a Skype call with as many as 9 students, however, a maximum of 5 is recommended. When you initiate the Skype call, it will call all of the attendees of that group lesson.
Skype is free video conferencing service that's available for download on various mobile, desktop, tablet and web-based applications. To download Skype, click here.
Note: Only teachers will have the ability to initiate Skype sessions with their students. This is to avoid a student calling you during a lesson.
