NOTE: We do not recommend Chromebooks for music and theatre due to low audio and video quality and occasional incompatibility with the Zoom Cloud Meetings app which is required for MTC’s activities. If you are unable to complete the installation, use a different device.
EVERY DAY YOU HAVE A LESSON, REHEARSAL, or PERFORMANCE: Install the CURRENT version of the Zoom Cloud Meetings app (NOT the Zoom Chrome Extension) from the Google Play Store:
Click the circle on the lower left corner of your screen
Click the Google Play Store icon (if you don’t see it, click the small arrow ^)
Search for Zoom
Install Zoom Cloud Meetings
Open the Zoom App
Click the Settings icon
Scroll down to Use Original Sound and turn it ON
IMPORTANT – THE STUDENT MUST DO THIS STEP AT THE START OF EVERY LESSON, REHEARSAL, AND PERFORMANCE – Zoom WILL NOT REMEMBER this setting:
Tap your screen, then select “More •••”
Click “Enable Original Sound”
If you do not see Enable Original Sound, leave the meeting and go back to step 5 above.
