ONLINE MUSIC LESSONS

with the Ottawa Folklore Centre and Skype!

What is Skype? Skype is a free software application that allows users to make voice calls and/or connect via video conferencing over the internet.

How Does it Work? Firstly, you’ll need a high speed internet connection, which can in fact be located anywhere in the world (you could take a Skype lesson from a beach in Hawaii if there was high speed internet!). Most people will do it from home. Go to the Skype site (skype.com) and download the free software. Skype will give you a special login name when you sign up that will help you connect to your teacher later on. You book and pay for lessons through the Ottawa Folklore Centre who will then set you up with a Skype contact for your teacher as well as a date, day and time for your first lesson. Subsequent lessons will be agreed upon by you and your teacher at the end of each session.

Lessons are $21 per half hour and there is a one-time e-membership fee of $15 (lessons are not taxed but the membership is). E-Membership is good for life and will get you discounts on all of your online purchases. Current members do not have to purchase an e-membership. For a full membership, which will enable you to get discounts on items in the physical store, the cost is $30 (or you can purchase a $15 upgrade from the e-membership.

Current teachers interested in teaching you lessons through Skype: Tony D.(blues guitar), Joel Daze (piano), Dan Grewal (Bass), Sarah Ross (violin), Dave Schyer, Bill Garrett (fingerstyle guitar), and more to come.

Contact 613-730-2887 ext 3 Monday-Friday 2pm-9pm for scheduling, payments and more info. For out of towners call 1-800-385- FOLK
