The best experience of PlayTheViolin Skype lessons is achieved on a laptop computer. Arrange your desktop so that this screen is on your left and your Skype is to your right. You should position your music stand to the left of your laptop. Have space behind your chair to stand up to play.

You can also get a good experience with a smartphone running Skype positioned on your music stand with another device used to view and play the music on this screen nearby. In this set up you should be standing to play. You can download the violin lesson mp3s here (from DropBox).

Lighting is important. Avoid having a window directly behind you. If you do then pull the curtains and have a lamp such as a desklight in front so that you are well-lit. Alternatively turn round so that you are lit by the light from the window. Position yourself so that you are visible from your waist upwards and your left hand can also be seen.
