New: Live Broadcast via Periscope on Monday

Periscope app iconGreetings, friends!

I’m excited to announce today a brand new experiment — read on.

Periscope is a platform (for iOS or Android) that allows users to broadcast a live video feed. Many bloggers and personalities are taking advantage of this relatively new platform to reach out and interact with their followers in a unique way.

Periscope broadcastBlogger and piano teacher Jennifer Foxx has already used Periscope a couple of times to talk about new products and giveaways.

Elizabeth Gutierrez is using Periscope for her Piano Play-Along series on her blog, In her Piano Play-Alongs, teachers can learn and study repertoire together and talk about how to teach it.

So, I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and try out Periscope as a way to create short, interactive talks about piano pedagogy. If it works out, I would love for this to become a weekly thing. If you have questions or ideas for what we could address in Periscope discussions, please submit those ideas here!

Interested? Here’s how to participate:

  1. First, download the Periscope app (for iOS or Android). You can either login using an existing Twitter account, or create a brand new login.
  2. Search for Joy Morin and click “follow.”
  3. You will receive a notification when I start a broadcast (I’m planning on Monday at noon Eastern time). During the broadcast, you can type to post comments or questions.
  4. If you aren’t available Monday at noon, the broadcast will be available for replay within Periscope for 24 hours. After that time, I’ll have the video available via YouTube here on the blog.

Hope to see you Monday at noon (Eastern time)!

Don't miss a thing!

  1. I’m planning to be there! I’ve watched the ones with Elizabeth Gutierrez, so I know how Periscope works and am all set to go.

  2. Love Periscope! Looking forward to your broadcast. (BTW — your link to is pointing to Jennifer Foxx’s page.)

  3. I have watched periscope a few times, and I was wondering if you thought it would be a good option for live streaming a recital? If not, do you have any recommendations on software/websites for live streaming a recital?

    1. Thanks for your question, Melissa. I think that Google Live or Google Hangouts would be a better option for live streaming a recital. Periscope is designed more for back-and-forth interaction between viewers and the broadcaster, and the broadcasts are completely public. With the right settings, Google Live or Hangouts can give you more privacy for your student’s recital. Hope that helps!
