Simple Gifts: In Yonder Valley
Step 2: Watch this video to learn how to make the best recording
Watch this video first for practice notes and guidelines on setting up your equipment for optimal recording! Videos that do not meet these criteria may need to be redone or may not be usable in this project.
Step 3: Record a video of you playing your part while watching/listening to this video on a separate device
Make sure you’ve practiced and are ready to perform the piece at the tempo of the recording. You need to be watching this video while making your video recording, beginning with the countdown for when to start your video camera.
Review your video recording on your device to be sure you did your very best, you used the proper camera orientation and angle, and we cannot hear the backing track in your recording. Please take the time to redo the recording if these criteria are not met.
Step 4: Rename Your Video On Your Device
Please rename your video in this format: “Part You’re Playing – Your Name”. For example, “Clarinet 1 – John Smith”. The ‘Part Name’ should read exactly as it does on your sheet music.
