One of the many perks of Skype is how it can bring people together, face-to-face, across thousands of miles. So often, we hear of families and friends utilizing Skype to keep their relationships strong. However, more and more, we are also hearing of how businesses and teachers are using Skype to educate people in remote areas, accommodating busy schedules and on-the-go consumers.
One amazing example of an instructor using Skype to teach others is that of Richard Fink IV. Richard is a vocal coach, songwriter and producer that has taught hundreds of students, ranging from multi-platinum selling rock performers to aspiring young pop stars.
To reach students outside of his Bergen, New York studio, Fink decided to use Skype video calling to communicate and instruct people around the world. So far, he has already trained students in 35 countries spanning 6 continents via Skype, demonstrating its true global reach! Using Skype on mobile devices, Fink’s students have even called him on-the-go for last minute advice while waiting to audition for singing competition shows such as “American Idol” and “The Voice.”
One of Richard’s students, Jerry Martin, was trained via Skype while stationed with the U.S. Army in Okinawa, Japan. He commented how they were able to go over everything from proper breathing to learning how to growl correctly in their lessons over Skype video calls!
