Zoom is the preferred method of online tutoring as it is an online platform used generally for conferencing and meetings. In our context, it is for tuition only and not for any other contact, e.g. sharing photos or general messaging. For the drum lessons to work online you will need to use a laptop as mobile and tablet versions of zoom automatically block background noise so the drum kit and music cannot be heard. On the laptop version you will need to go into settings, then audio, then click advanced and make sure both 'suppress intermittent and persistent background noise' is disabled and enable original audio is ticked. Also make sure the webcam and microphone are working prior to the lesson by doing a trial video call. Further to this please make sure both the drum kit and the student are as visible as possible and that the drum kit and student can be heard. Making sure if an electric drum kit is being used that an amplifier is available.
