Skype lessons.

Post by tompipes » Tue Oct 30, 2012 10:03 am

I will be starting to teach music lessons on uilleann pipes, flute and tin whistle very soon.

All via Skype so you won't even have to leave your house! Or even school or work!

All the details are here

Let me know if any of you have given or taken lessons via skype. Any pros of cons to share?

All the best,

Tommy

One suggestion: when using SKYPE, don't rely on wireless. The sound and picture quality can suffer. Connect the pc/laptop to the modem with an ethernet cable.

Don't think so. Just your standard low-quality, mass-produced electronics that cable companies punt as part of the "TV, phone & internet" service.

I keep getting a 'requested page not found' error and a webhosting advert.
The url in Tommy's post isn't completely hotlinked so even if I copy and paste the whole url as posted i still get thd same webhosting for 0$ error page.

Thanks spazmo. That works.

What's interesting is the two urls are exactly the same, yet one gets and error and the other goes to the right place.

Hehe yeah it's the way forums work. When a forum like this encounters a long URL, it will shorten the visible URL, but the actual location that you go to when you click it will still be the long one. So I could link to http://www.example.com/here_is_a_really ... e_of_a_URL and it will shorten the link that you see on the page, but when you hover over it, you can probably see the full link in your browser's status bar or something.

What I imagine has happened here is Tommy has posted his Skype lession details on *cough* another forum *cough*, which has shortened the URL, and then he has copy->pasted the results into this forum, which has resulted in this discrepancy.

Sorry for that diversion! I've got Tommy's "Uilleann Piper" CD and it's got some fine piping and and whistle playing on it. I'm sure he'll do well with the Skype lessons!
