If you never had a Skype lesson with me the first trial lesson is free: book a Decaffeinato! When you book a Decaffeinato, you are asked to give 3 time-slots: I will pick up the most convenient time slot according to my schedule, and you will receive a confirmation by email.
If you are already a coffee addicted, you can choose among several options:
– Ristretto, one shot lesson of 45min
– Doppio, two shots of 45 mins, best option if you want to get some material to practice and double-check if you learnt it well
– Americano XXL, you drink coffee regularly and you wanna explore more subjects or just one in deep.
– The Coffee Machine, a full course of 10 lessons through all the year. I can show you plenty of things, and it’s really useful to meet regularly and see your progresses.
How to book a lesson:
You can book the lesson directly from the form below.
Before booking, make sure you have a Skype account, a Paypal account, a pair of headphones and a good internet connection.
After you choose the size of your coffee (a single lesson, or a group of lessons) you’ll be asked to pick the time-slots you prefer.
If you don’t find a suitable time, write me an email, or we can find a solution in the next meetings.
When you book a 4- or 10-sessions, don’t worry too much about the dates of the next appointments: we will monitor the calendar at the end of our meetings, and if necessary we can reschedule together the next lessons.
After you’ve picked your time-slots you’ll be asked your details: name, email, phone, … Please don’t forget to write me some notes about you, which instrument do you play, what you would like to explore in the lesson!
After you complete the payment you’ll receive an email-confirmation; you will also receive a reminder of our lesson 24 hours and 1 hour before the meeting.
Don’t forget to add me on Skype! My Skype name is simone.bottasso
During the lesson
A Skype lesson is very similar to a physical meeting: I’m going to listen, give you suggestions to improve and exercises, and I will give you some assignments. The only difference is that we can’t play together because of latency, but I developed my way of teaching within this limitation. Moreover, since we can’t play together, I can focus very much on your play (and vice-versa).
You can video-record some parts of our lesson in order to practice following my video, or just listen back to my explanation. You’ll find the video directly in our Skype chat after our lesson.
PS: These videos are private, please do not share them !
To reschedule your appointment follow the link you find in the email-confirmation.
If you reschedule the booking up to one day before the meeting time, you will not be charged a rescheduling fee. If you reschedule the booking within one day from the meeting time, you will be charged a bit.
It might happen that I have to reschedule our appointment for concerts, rehearsals or travels… in that case I’m gonna contact you asap to find a time-slot that suits both of us!
Facebook Live Stream during COVID-19
