Livestream Concert Tutorial

 There are two parts to every livestream:

  1. Concert stream (~45-50 minutes)
  2. Post-concert q&a (~20+ min)

There are two essential roles (and one optional) for every livestream:

  1. Performer: featured musician/s 
  2. Staff Emcee: Groupmuse staff member moderating and handling the technical aspects of the groupmuse
  3. Host (optional): invites friends to the concert and assists in guiding the socializing element

Order of Events


  • Musician, staff Emcee, and (optional) host all meet in Zoom 30 minutes prior to the groupmuse's start time
  • Attendees arriving early will be directed to the waiting room
  • Staff emcee and musician exchange phone numbers in order to communicate during the concert


  • 15 minutes prior to the groupmuse's start time, the technical support Zoom room will open for all attendees to ask questions
  • Staff emcee will be there to give a basic zoom/groupmuse platform orientation, discuss what Groupmuse is (including Groupmuses's community standards), set timing expectations, and provide the link to pay the musician(s)


  • Music begins at the start of the groupmuse's designated time, embedded in the groupmuse's streaming page
  • Throughout the concert the staff emcee will be available in the technical support Zoom room
  • Attendees are encouraged to share comments about the pieces/performance in the Youtube chat
  • The link to pay the musician(s) will be on the groupmuse's streaming page.

  • The musician and attendees are asked to join the staff emcee in Zoom for a ~20 minute Q&A.
  • Emcee mutes everyone, stating that attendees can unmute themselves to ask a question OR type it into the chatbox for the emcee/host to read outloud to the musician(s).
  • After ~20 minutes of Q&A, the emcee/host will make one final contribution reminder and signs off.
