Skype helped keep Michigan (USA) student Courtney Hutson from Mona Shores High school in touch with her violin teacher Becky Parks while the latter was on sabbatical in Switzerland.

Parks was able to make corrections to Hutson’s posture and fingering using a webcam on a computer in the school’s gymnasium, and one on Parks’ laptop.

Despite being half a world away Hutson was able to make a good preparation for her audition for the All-State orchestra.
