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. This will most likely be regular Canopy Room attendees, friends of attendees, and some friends of mine with children. If you are not comfortable with being seen, you can click the "Stop Video" button which will black out your screen.
Can I broadcast Zoom on my television using Chromecast? We haven’t been able to figure this out yet, but if you do figure it out, please let us know!
I missed the last episode, can I see any previous DoReMe&You online sessions? Yes, click here to check out our videos! Be sure to "subscribe" on YouTube if you'd like to support us.
I can’t make the next one, will there be more events? Yes! We will be hosting DoReMe&You on Wednesdays through June 2020. After that, we will keep updating our Facebook Event page, You'll get notifications/updates if you click "Attending" or "Interested!" (and please feel free to share with your network). We are hoping to continuing offering this program for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I can’t afford a donation, is there anything I can do to contribute? Absolutely! “Sharing” our videos and content on your social media accounts is always awesome. Sharing pictures/videos of your kiddos interacting with our programs can help us develop future programs and content. And if you’re feeling generous and would like to grant us rights to use the pics/vids on our social media, that would be awesome! Thank you!! We are grateful for your kindness and support!
Do you offer this program in real life? Yes! DoReMe&You usually runs on Wednesdays in the beautiful Canopy Room at the ultra-hip Bow Market in Union Square, Somerville, MA 02143. We’re planning to start up again on Wednesdays and some Saturdays after this whole corona-thing has passed, please email us if you’d like to join!
