2. Enter the STUDENT'S name & phone # in the messaging signup page.

    • PARENTS: if you’d like to receive all messages too, enter YOUR email address. This is not mandatory, but we recommend it. All messages will be centrally monitored by admin staff. We ask that you use the student's phone number, unless, of course, they don't have one. In that case, use your own. Actual phone numbers will not be visible to students or teaching faculty.

Getting Set up for live video streaming

1. Download Zoom here.

We recommend using the desktop version whenever possible because of the bigger screen and additional features. However, you can also find iOS & Android versions on this page.


2. Log into your Music House account

Scroll down to the "Your Programs" section. If it's time for your lesson, Workshop, or Class, you'll see a "start your remote session" button.

Start your online lesson

Don't see the button? That just means your teacher hasn't started the session yet. If it's time for your scheduled program to begin, refresh the page every 30 seconds or so and it will appear shortly.


3. When it's time, click the button & have a great lesson or class!
