How to get started with Private Skype Lessons

Skype is a free internet communication system allowing us to both see and hear each other live via your computer. You can use it to call anyone in the world who also has a Skype connection.

To sign up for lessons, please contact us via email addressing the points above. We will then email you back to organize a suitable time along with a link to make payment via PayPal.

If you don't have a Skype account already, simply go to (www.skype.com) to download the free software, choose your Skype name and password. After you have set-up your free Skype account, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your Skype name. Our name is "GiancarloandMasha"

Before we begin your Skype dance lessons, you will need the following:

Ensure your system meet the technical requirements below:

  • PC using Windows 2000, XP, or Vista (Windows 2000 users require Direct 9.0.) or Mac OS 10.3.9 or later (any OS earlier than 10.4.5 is hard to find a webcam for though. But most webcams and digital video cameras will "plug and play" with later versions of 10.4 or any 10.5.)
  • At least 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB RAM, and 40 MB free space on hard drive (more CPU speed is better, but Skype does not need a lot of RAM)
  • High speed/broadband internet connection of at least 400 kbps (test your connection speed at: http://www.bandwidth.com/tools/speedTest/)
  • Digital camera - webcam suggestions on www.skype.com (If your computer has a built in camera you can use that, or you can use a video camcorder if it has a "firewire" cable to connect to your computer).
  • Microphone - Best if fairly close to you. (Your computer might already have a built in microphone, and many webcams do, too. A USB headset/mic combination is also an option.)
  • Speakers or headphones - probably already on or with your computer. If not, and you will need to get a wireless mic. Avoid microphones with wires.
  • VERY IMPORTANT Good lighting setup - A reasonably well-lit room, preferably with some light coming from the front of you. A desk lamp sitting next to your computer monitor should be good. Most webcams or digital video cameras do not need a lot of light, but it does need some light coming from in front of your face. Backlighting makes you difficult to see.
  • Quiet room during Skype lessons (no TV, conversations, or other distracting noise)
