DoReMe&You Live! Frequently Asked Questions
Can I join the Zoom group without downloading the app? YES! When you click the link to join the meeting, it will ask you to download the application – but if you wait a moment, the following message will appear in smaller text “If you cannot download or run the application, join from your browser” and you can click the link there to join from your internet browser. However, it is recommended to download the app to your phone, tablet or computer to ensure higher audio/visual quality.
Are Zoom-based DoReMe&You programs recorded? Sometimes. We will announce if we are recording at the beginning of each session. If you do not want to be in a recording, please turn off your video. Click "Stop Video" on the bottom left corner of the Zoom screen.
Is it a private meeting? Only people with the link and password can access the session. Please do not share the Zoom link with anyone. If you have friends who want to join, please have them register or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Do you offer this program in real life? DoReMe&You used to run in the beautiful Canopy Room at the ultra-hip Bow Market in Union Square, Somerville, MA 02143.
