Robert made us an unbelievably generous offer when he responded to Elyse’s first batch of questions. Although he is headed to Germany for the summer, he is willing to give EACH of us one Skype lesson to work on all the techniques he uses in the piece. Wow!! I am humbled, excited and nervous all at once. What a gift.
Ever since Skype was invented I’ve heard of professional orchestral flutists using Skype to teach lessons during their travels. As the technology improves, the glitches decrease. I once had a parent joke that I should Skype with my students on snow days, but I haven’t ever used Skype for teaching, either giving or receiving a lesson. I’m excited to give it a try!
