    Hi, rather than reviving my old classes which had a formal lesson plan and such I'm going to offer much more casual classes and lessons.

    I've been an Utau user since 2010 and know the ins and outs of otoing all recording methods, tuning, and more. I have taught classes previously with good success and hope to make it a regular occurrence.
    Even if you think you know Utau you can probably still pick up a thing or two!

    The lack of formality lets us be more flexible.

    I will be available to teach for the next four days. Both 1-on-1 and in groups. I'll also review your current otos and give you a run down of how you may improve!

    Classes will be held via Google Hangouts or Skype, whichever works for the most people.

    Requirements:
    You must speak decent English, I only know English and expect everyone to be able to understand on another in groups.
    You should have a microphone. If I am going over recording techniques then it will be very important to be able to create your own samples on the spot for better explanation.
    You HAVE to participate. If you are silent the whole time then I don't know if you are listening. Try to ask questions.
    Text communication isn't ideal, it breaks focus to have to read it and takes a lot of time.
    Please use push to talk or mute your mic if your room is noisy, if you are making noise then the communication will be garbled.
    Just because you think you know something doesn't mean you can leave and come back or interrupt and complain. It is disruptive for everyone else.
    So basically, be there, use your voice, don't be rude.

    That's it! Post here in you are interested. I will probably be streaming my screen via YouTube so everyone can see what I'm doing. People who are not in the class can watch too.

    I can do them as soon as tomorrow. My timezone is EST (eastern standard time/-5).

    I can probably start as early as noon or as late as 7:30pm.

    Alright, that still leaves a fairly large window of opportunity for others and works well for my schedule (I'm a night person usually lol, especially because of work).

    I'll post updates here on and am still accepting more people.

    I will still need to decide the best method of voice chat since ideally we would have access to screen sharing.
    Hangouts tends to lag less than Skype but you either need to use Google Chrome or install an addon.
    Skype tends to drop calls but more people probably already have it.
    We technically could also chat via a private channel on chat.tubs.moe which would work straight through the web browser. It'd also give use a searchable archive of all conversations that never expires.
    We can decide that whenever.

    Feel free to tell people about the lessons btw, I can probably do around 10 people at once.

    Oooh that's such a great idea !
    Will you redo this class again ? I'd like to attend but I'm not going to have my computer back until the 17th of this month.
    Also I have a suggestion : Is it possible to record a teaching session and upload it on YouTube ? That would be great for people outside of the USA.

    I agree w/ your suggestion, the best one for me is caustic will teach how to VCV & CVVC properly...They're important lessons and need to be documented. :D

    The lesson will start around 8:30pm in my country (GMT +7) ...If my net is good and i have free time, i'll attend.

    I planned for all classes to be streamed live via YouTube and saved.

    So what time would work for everyone? Around 2 hours from now?

    Not sure yet, we need to figure it out.

    The third option is chat.tubs.moe since the chat history doesn't get deleted.
    Hangouts is good since it directly streams to Youtube, bad if no one wants to use it ofc.
    Skype because everyone has Skype but it deletes chat history and the quality is reaaaaly low.

    I may be able to teach another class today. It's very short notice so it's fine if no one is able to attend.
    It's 6am for me right now so the class would be at 4-5pm or so.
