HOW TO ENHANCE YOUR ONLINE COACHING EXPERIENCE
These are some useful tips to get the most out of your online coaching experience.
To get the best sound on zoom and so I can hear you in the clearest way, please go to your audio settings and make them look like this!
COMPUTER OR LAPTOP
Phones and tablets don't work very well for online coaching, especially on Zoom. Having a laptop or computer to use will enhance your experience.
A SEPARATE DEVICE FOR PLAYING BACKING TRACKS
This is mainly to keep you in key and in time whilst you're signing, so the sound does not need to be loud or amazing quality, but having a separate device to play your music from such as a phone or speaker means your computer isn't overloaded with information. You can find free backing tracks on the likes of Youtube, by simply typing in your song and words such as 'karaoke' or 'instrumental' after it.
If possible, please have an ethernet cable which is attached to your Wifi router. Often wifi isn't strong enough for online sessions. This creates a delay and sound issues, so having a long ethernet cable that you can attach to your computer in any room is advisable.
Zoom updates its software very regularly, so please make sure you have the most up to date software. This ensures the sound quality in sessions is the best it can be.
