Zoom Music Lesson Setup for Mac/iPad/iPhone

Greetings teachers, students, and fellow musicians! With various assessments going around I’ve made an updated video that covers proper Zoom settings for Macs, iPads, and iPhones, for you or your students as needed. There’s also a link to a related video for Windows computers, for those that need it.

Like/follow/subscribe if you find it helpful, @notesnumbers on YouTube, @notesandnums on instagram, otherwise best of luck in the Wild West of good sound on the internet, and maybe I’ll see some of you in Reno!
