COVID-19

We are open for face to face coaching, we are currently offering online as well for those clients needing/wanting them.

Computer settings for ONLINE SESSIONS

Please make sure you have altered your audio settings on the Zoom App: 

 

Laptops/PC's

  • First, go to the audio settings via the arrow next to the ‘Mute’ button.

  • Untick ‘Automatically Adjust Microphone Volume’

  • Just above that, adjust the ‘Input Volume’ slider to about 75%.

  • Go to ‘Advanced’ at the bottom of the setting page

  • Tick “Show in-meeting option to “Enable Original Sound” from microphone”. This one is important.

  • Change both “Suppress Persistent Background Noise” and “Suppress Intermittent Background Noise” to disabled

  • “Echo Cancellation” is set on auto

  • Be sure you tick “Turn on Original Sound” when your in meeting.

 

Ipads and Iphones: 

It’s not great to be having voice lessons on these. However,  you can at least implement this change to help sound quality a little:

Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual > Phone Noise Cancellation (untick)

Face to Face guidance.

**If you are unsure in any way whether someone you have had contact with within the week before your session may have shown any Covid symptoms, then you must cancel or re-arrange your lesson and get tested. Be Safe rather than sorry.

Here is a step by step for your face to face lesson...

1) If you can, please do a lateral flow test each week.

2) Please bring your own water, pencil, voice recorder etc.

3) Sanitise your hands on entry

4) Please wait in the waiting area until your time slot

5) Scan the Dexter Vocals QR Code

6) We will remote temperature check you. If your temperature show RED, I'm sorry we cannot teach you.

7) Please keep 1M distance

 

What happens in my lesson? 

- Client + coach will be at least 2M away from each other.

- Coaches maybe wearing a mask throughout the lesson.

- You can also wear PPE if you wish too, but you are not required to.
- Please keep your distance and don't touch the piano.

- You will face away from the coach and piano.
- Any tracks will be played via bluetooth speakers.

- All doors are opened in-between lessons, so bring a jumper incase its chilly at the start.
- The room will be ventilated after each session.
