Video Call Guitar Lessons
WHAT ARE VIDEO CALL LESSONS?
Video call lessons work similar to our normal one to one studio lessons, except we connect using our phones, tablets, PC or laptop to teach our guitar lessons to our students.
We use free downloadable programs/apps like Skype, Zoom and WhatsApp for our lessons.
After we’ve both downloaded the same program/app to our phones or laptop and set up an account (please see below how to do this), we’ll decide on a suitable time for the lesson. At the arranged time, we’ll send you a video call and we can begin the lesson.
“We at Salford Guitar Lessons have taught many Skype lessons and we’ve become very experienced in our approach to our delivery on Skype, allowing the material and audio to be heard clearly and precise. We strive for a decent visual and audio quality and have the equipment set up to achieve this.”
– Tez Skachill, Founder of SALFORD GUITAR LESSONS
During this very concerning time with the COVID-19 virus & lockdown, Skype lessons are the safest way to continue or start learning the guitar with us.
There’s no worry for social distancing and risks of transmission of the virus, as Skype lessons are connected via the internet through our phones or laptops.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD & INSTALL THE SOFTWARE/APPS?
For laptops & PC’s we recommend downloading & installing either Skype or Zoom software.

Using your phone or tablet is an easier way to connect these lessons as they have a built-in camera ready to go.
We recommend using WhatsApp as this works really well.

All these programs/apps are free to use.
