We are working on the desktop version but it will be some time before desktop is released. Currently, you can use the service on iOS or Android (mobiles and tablets).

I set up a multi-camera Zoom for my lessons.

On top of the piano for eye-to-eye view, and this is also my microphone, so I look at the student when I am speaking.
I have a beam of wood sticking out over the piano with an old cell-phone for showing my hands over the keys. I also have a side view from an older laptop on a bookshelf on caster wheels.

Most of my students have one camera, showing their shoulder and keys.

Showing pedaling sucks. I have seen a camera set up for footwork. I haven't done it myself.
For my littles, I have them stand to pedal, and the ones that are doing real pedaling, have thankfully already been taught pre-covid.

I invite different email addresses and Zoom with myself for set up, before the student joins. Lighting, sound, action! While not ideal, I have been able to make it work.

Parents are familiar with Zoom, and might be hesitant to try yet another new thing.


Learning as I teach.

We are trying to make the experience ideal so that you just don't have to settle with making it work. With Classnika we are also making it easier so that parents don't have to be involved all the time. No emails every time, the classes appear in Student's Classnika schedule and we have had children as little as 6 who have become self sufficient.

Some of you had asked for more information on Classnika's set up. We are creating a series of videos and here are some to start with. We welcome feedback.
