The ZOOM app will automatically launch when you click on the Join Zoom Meeting link in the email or text.

You can also attend a meeting by launching the ZOOM app, clicking the JOIN A MEETING button, and entering the Meeting ID number (I would only use this option if the sign-in link does not work).

BEFORE ENTERING THE MEETING THE FOLLOWING THREE PROMPTS SHOULD BE ANSWERED

1. Enter your name and instrument to join the meeting. This will help the host easily identify members for breakout rooms.

2. Click on JOIN WITH VIDEO so that you will be visible to the meeting.

3. Click on CALL USING INTERNET AUDIO to hear others in the meeting.
