Technology hardware
We strongly recommend that each student acquire adequate technology hardware in order to fully benefit from the virtual eLearning experience.

  • An Ethernet cable connected directly into the router is preferable as is using a computer rather than a tablet or phone.
  • For maximum acoustic quality, we recommend using a professional external microphone plugged into the computer and being in a very quiet or soundproof environment.

It is up to each student to optimize his/her workspace to fully benefit from this virtual online experience at the Domaine Forget Academy.

Pre-recorded videos
Each student must record a 1 to 3 minute presentation video: background, school,  career path and expectations of the eLearning session that professors could view before the beginning of the session.

The student must also submit a video of his/her entire work before the start of the first session as well as on the 4th day of the session so that the professors can use the videos to improve the pedagogical experience. 

N.B.: It is strictly forbidden to record or take photos during masterclasses without the guest musician’s prior approval, should this be the case, these recordings or photos must be kept solely for your private use.
