Tips for Using Zoom

Zoom gives us an easy, high-quality connection for online classes.  Your direct link to class can be found on the class webpage once you sign up.

The controls appear when you place mouse over screen.

Uncheck this box if you need to manually adjust volume slider above for microphone/input.


“Original Sound”

Phone & Ipad –

In Zoom app:

1. Touch “Settings”

2.  Touch “Meetings”

3.  Scroll down, toggle "Use Original Sound" to the On position

In Zoom meeting:

1. Touch 3 dots or More…

2. Touch "Enable Original Sound"

Why it’s so important – “Original Sound” allows others to hear you play fiddle – otherwise, Zoom will suppress the violin sound as “noise” as if it was a meeting where only voices matter.

See below for pictures of audio settings.

Echo Cancellation can be helpful.
