Integrating music into your Zoom events can help set the tone and rhythm when you start your class. However, this is totally up to the teacher’s preference.
Note: This is intended to be a guide on how to play music while teaching through the Zoom app, it is not advice on music licensing. For more information on music licensing please check out our article: Legal: Waiver, Insurance + Music
To share music over Zoom follow these steps:-
Step 1: Join your event a few minutes before your students attend. Inside Zoom click on the Share button.
Ensure the sound on your device and within the meeting is not muted.
Step 2: Click on the Advanced option at the top of the screen. Select the "Music or Computer Sound Only" option.
Once you start sharing, you should see a green and red box at the top of your meeting screen with the words, “You are sharing computer sound” and “stop share”. This will let you know that it’s working.
Step 4: Play music from your music app or website
Go to your music playing app or website you wish to use and choose your music. Adjust the sound on the music playing service you’re using (not your entire computer volume) so that your voice can be heard over it.
In this example we chose Spotify:
Step 5: Have a Great Class!
Once you’re done with the class, just click on the red “stop share” button at the top of the meeting. This will stop the music from being shared with the members but it will still play on your device, so remember to stop the music too 🙂
