- mute yourself when someone else is singing
- when it’s your turn to sing, pull up the instrumental on youtube and share your screen (green button at bottom of zoom window)
- play the instrumental at a moderate volume and sing your heart out! if it’s balanced in your living room it’ll be balanced in ours.

pro tip
for a better viewing experience, go into zoom’s preferences, select “share screen” and make sure “side-by-side” is selected. toggle it off and on just to be sure! you can then drag to resize the screen share window and balance it out with the speaker or grid view.
