♫ Place - Find a quiet space with no distractions and a good internet connection.
♫ Equipment - All you need is a tablet, laptop or mobile phone. The Zoom and Skype apps can be used on either device. Whatsapp can be used on a smartphone. Have your instrument ready (and tuned) along with any sheet music and practice materials.
♫ Screen Position - To check the angle, turn your screen onto selfie mode, and place it approx a metre away from you. In the screen view, the tutor should be able to see your instrument and posture. Find something sturdy to hold the screen safely at this angle.
A tripod stand is really useful. Otherwise, you might be able to use a music stand, chair, shelf, etc.
