How to record yourself

Before you start
Before you start performing your piece, make sure that you have rehearsed and are conifdent that you can record your best performance.

Make sure you and your instrument can be seen on the video screen.

Make sure you record your video in landscape.

Videos are better if they are from a still camera or phone rather than someone holding the recording device.

Try to make your recording in a smaller room with a carpet or rug. (eg. a bedroom or lounge, rather than a kitchen or open plan living space) This will provide a better acoustic for the performance and limit the amount of reverb.

If you can, try to record at least 1 to 2 metres from your recording device to prevent distortion of the sound.

How do I save my recording ?
Please save your recording with a title as follows:

Surname Firstname Part (You will only need to include what part you are playing if you are uploading a video of part of a group recording.)

Eg: Sharman Sarah violin 1
