Please download and update the Zoom Software:
First-time users should download the Zoom meeting software. It is called: Zoom Desktop Client'. There are versions for Phones and Tablets in the playstore. Use the most recent version.
Modern computers should use the 64-bit version. The Zoom developers are updating their software frequently. If you are using an older version of Zoom it may not work correctly. Joining Zoom from your browser is slow and results in poor-quality sound and video. We do not recommend using an ipad for music connections.
Internet: Fibre Max. We recommend Fibre Max for streaming video and audio to a high standard. Please check with data providers for the best rates. More...
Ethernet Cable: An ethernet cable delivers video and audio many times faster than wireless routers. This makes a significant difference to the quality of your video and music. More...
Headphones: Headphones help to avoid echo when playing music online. They also allow you to talk, sing and play your instrument further way from your computer.
There are more settings in Zoom. Please go to the Zoom website for the many other options available.
Remember to have fun and enjoy making music. We are musicians!
