This paper presents the use of ISDN-videoconferencing in practicum of teacher training at the University of Oulu in Finland. A special emphasis is given on music education explaining the problems and experiences of teaching music in VC-environment. Music lessons have more complicated difficulties than a normal VC-lesson, because for example a teacher cannot show the pupils from up close the instruments. But the ISDN-technology even helps the teacher in many ways. Experiences of a distance education project at Utsjoki School in Lapland are explained thoroughly and presented with videotaped-material of lessons.
