Visit Zoom.us from a computer or download the Zoom Cloud Meeting app on your phone, computer, tablet, etc., and create a free account.
At your child’s scheduled class time (all class times are CDT), log in and select “join a meeting.” It will ask you for the meeting ID, and that will be 232-566-6351. When prompted, enter the password music.
You can also simply click here and it will take you to the meeting. (You may still need to download the software, so please allow yourself time to familiarize yourself with the app or website before your first class.)
First time users, it will also ask for permission to access your microphone, camera, etc.
If your teacher has opened up the meeting, you will join right away. If not, you will see a message that states “Please wait for the host to start this meeting.”
Once logged in, you can select either “Speaker View” in which all you will see is your music teacher and a small video of yourself and others, or “Gallery View” in which you will see everyone equally. Your choice will not affect anyone else’s view.
So that’s it! There will be other minor details to cover, but that will be easier to do “in person.”
Please keep in mind that we will be using our instruments during class, so now is the time to be creative! Find those wooden spoons for rhythm sticks, build your own sand blocks with blocks and sand paper, turn over a mixing bowl for a drum, put some rice in small …we got this!!
Thanks again, everyone! Have a wonderful class with Ms. Sidney!
