Playing Music in Your Zoom Class

Playing Music in Your Zoom Class

Music is an easy way to add energy to virtual classes. For example, you can:

  1. Play music as students join the session, so you set a tone of good vibes from the beginning.
  2. When students are working on exercises, chill music can increase concentration.
  3. As your session is ending, play music so your students leave with an upbeat impression from the class.

Plus: It takes < 10 seconds to set up.
