I use Zoom for my lessons and for the the monthly performance workshops I do. It works really well. There is no lag, and the sound quality is pretty good. It is much better than skype. The 40 minute limitation is only for group meetings. For our workshops we just restart a new meeting to make our meeting an hour. I actually have a workshop next weekend at 4 pm GMT, which conflicts with the chosen time. I might be able to join the Sunday workshop instead. I will let you know.

I'd very much be up for this. Zoom is probably the best option (I use this for my coaching; not piano related) - it's a very small download and free up to 40 minutes for groups. If we want to make it longer than that, we need someone with a paid account who can create the meeting.

Apologies if someone has already said that, I haven't read all the previous posts yet, am at work and a little rushed right now.

TL;DR: Count me in!

How's this for structure.

Zoom chat rooms have a 40 minute time limit. Probably good enough for a first time around anyway. I suppose another room can be opened if more time is needed.

Set up phone / computer / ipad etc where we can see you or the keys, can position however you feel best, then chat for a few minutes. After some brief intros, everyone can have a turn playing for a few minutes, say one piece, then if time permits a second round. If you don't have anything "finished", that's okay.....this isn't a recital. Mistakes allowed (even encouraged lol); you can even stop in the middle of a measure and say something like "I'm having a little trouble on this spot". Totally casual.

How's Saturday morning at 11 am EST? I know b#, the only PST that replied, gets up at 5 am anyway! Will be mid afternoon for Sibylle.

Thoughts?

I have nothing anywhere near ready, as I've only just restarted and am injured and hardly allowed to practice right now. So I'd be joining for the party part, I hope that's ok smile

Hey, I'm in no shape for a recital either. Just for fun. Let's see if we can get a few commitments. Is that time ok for some? If so can check back here for the code or whatever it is we need at say 10:55 am EST.

Yes, you can join with an iPhone, iPad or computer. If you use an iPhone or other mobile device, you need to download the (free) Zoom app. Then when the time comes, check here for the meeting ID, which I will provide upon starting the meeting. I am not sure if you need to create a user account, but you might. Either way, it's free.

You can also join from a computer. Go to the Zoom website, click "Join A Meeting", and enter the meeting ID. It will have you download some little app / program and then enter the meeting ID. No signup required.
