  • Google Android devices will need to install a FREE app- If you are using a Google Android device, you will need to download a free app so you can access our Adobe Connect classes. Click here to download the free Adobe Connect Mobile for Android.

  • Optional Mic and Video Camera- If you are attending a class that allows participants to join in (other than text chat), you will need a working microphone and/or video camera attached to your device if you would like to play for the class. It is not required that you play for the class, but if you want to, you should test that both your mic and video camera are functioning properly.

  • Headphones or Ear Buds- If you would like to play in a class, please have some headphones or ear buds nearby. You will likely need to mute your computer speakers so as to not create a feedback loop. If you do not have either available, you can mute your speakers when you play and then un-mute them when you are done. If you are playing along to a class supplied .MP3 or .MIDI file, you will definitely need headphones or ear buds so you can play while listening to the music (without the speakers on).
