I'm a music teacher and am currently teaching two students over Skype each week. One is a few hundred miles away - I'm near NYC - and the other about 7,000 miles away.
For both students, I have problems using my iPad2 and playing duets with my students. It sounds as if Skype works much like a speaker phone that decides which is louder and only lets that sound go through. I cannot hear my student if I play at all loudly.
I'd like to know if this is a limitation of Skype on the iPad2, Skype in all circumstances and on all computers, something that could be fixed by, e.g., using the Camera Connection Kit for the iPad2 and a separate mic, using headphones instead of the built-in speaker - or what. I confess to having no idea where and how to start trying to solve this problem.
Thanks very much.
May I ask whether you resolved this? I'd like to try something similar musically, but all indications from my Skype expereience are that the louder sound takes over, as you say.

hello, I am a music teacher as well. I came on looking for an answer to this very question. Could you email me at xxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxx if you have any answers? By the way, what instrument do you teach and where are you? I am a cellist out of NYC. All the best, peter lewy
