Montana Skies

We recently started using Skype on the road to stay in touch with family and friends back home. As the video and sound quality on the internet have improved we both thought it would be a great way to work with musicians who might want learn more about our styles of playing.


Sharing our thoughts and ideas on music is something we've always loved to do, but we haven't had time to keep a teaching studio going in one geographic spot. The best thing about Skype is we can do it from anywhere, so we thought this fall we would explore the possibility of working with music students via Skype.


If you are interested in the possibility of having a Skype lesson with either of us (Jenn-cello or Jon-guitar) please let us know by emailing us.  Our emails are listed on the contact page. Please include your name and instrument too. Don't worry, you won't be committing to anything, we just want to know if you might be interested and stay in touch about it. We haven't decided on any pricing yet, but we are going to select a couple of people to try it with us for free at first. So, if you'd like to stay in the loop as we move forward with this idea, please just reply to this email with your name and instrument. If you have any questions for us please let us know...

Hello group, from Santa Fe New Mexico! This sounds very exciting. I have to go back to the links that Jon sent me a while ago to practice flamenco griego. Maybe we can expand it to 10 guitars and 5 cellos ...

PS...  After experimenting with some with this idea (with various chat services) with a few players.  We noticed that Skype seemed to work fine for some in the US, but not as well for the overseas chats that we had.  It seemed to depend on the quality of the connection.  We're going to try the Tokbox video chat through this site too.  It also seems like it will work best to also approach the sharing of info. in non-real time, with video and pdf uploads (as a complement to the live video chats).  We'll also set up individual pages where we can upload video, sheet music (pdf) and audio privately to each other. That way we can work on lessons some in real time via video chat, and some in correspondence via the video and pdf uploads.
