Skype

Online teaching via Skype

Prior to March 2020, Skype teaching made up maybe 10% of my workload. The focus was very much on face-to-face, in the flesh teaching and Skype was, in effect, an add on service…. for pupils that had moved away, were working away, on holiday, couldn’t make their lesson etc

The day before the official Covid lockdown that all changed – I made the executive decision to move all teaching online. For the best part of 18 months my teaching was exclusively via Skype. 

In such difficult times for all of us, bizarrely my teaching volume increased. This was quite an eye opener. Not only did it make me realise that there was a whole wealth of people out there with time on their hands that wanted to learn new skills, but it made me realise how good teaching online via Skype actually is.

Fast forward 2 years to March 2022 and I am back on the face-to-face teaching for those that want it. Currently it is approximately 50/50 face-to-face and online. 

Tellingly, approximately 50% of my long term ‘local’ pupils still choose to have their lessons online. That says something about the platform and the advantages it offers…

It also enables me to teach anyone anywhere, from anywhere in the world! All both parties need is a phone/tablet/laptop and an internet connection…. oh, and a guitar

That is quite liberating, and offers a whole wealth of opportunities…
