Introducing Online Studio: Making Online Teaching As Painless As Possible

Who would have imagined in 2019 that a Zoom account would be an essential tool for a music teacher in 2022? “Zoom” and “online lesson” were not even in our vocabularies back then. For some, those terms bring back feelings of dread as we remember the months and years we had to teach online. But for others, an online teaching platform opens opportunities to grow a studio or offer flexibility that we never considered before.

Whether you use it a lot or a little, online teaching is here to stay. And that’s why Duet is thrilled to announce the launch of a new feature: Online Studio, a video conferencing platform built seamlessly into your Duet account. Duet partnered with RealTime Audio to offer a platform that is specially designed for music teachers, with enhanced audio technology that addresses many of the frustrations of Zoom. And in addition to all of the features we’ve come to expect in a video conferencing platform like a lobby and breakout rooms, Online Studio offers digital tools that music teachers need specifically.

With a simple click, you can select Online Studio as the location of a new lesson. When it’s time for the lesson, both teacher and student are brought together in an online space that is dedicated to enhanced sound quality specific to a musical environment. Along with the high quality sound, teachers can also find:

  • Digital whiteboard
  • File sharing capabilities
  • Chat
  • Waiting room
  • Breakout rooms
  • Group lesson capabilities
  • Lesson recording
  • Livestream capability on YouTube
  • Metronome
  • Guitar tuner
  • Guitar chord chart generator
  • Digital keyboard

And for those who are interested in investing in the ability to play simultaneously without any lag, we offer the RealTime Audio Plug & Play box which can be connected directly to your computer to take your music-making experience to the next level.

When you’re ready to add Online Studio to your Duet account, simply login to Duet and click on “Online Studio” in the main navigation. This is just a taste of the good things that are coming to Duet this year!
