If a picture paints a thousand words, how many does a video paint?
I have invested in a new Video Camera for the studio that will be used to record students playing pieces to enable them to review their performance at home between lessons.
With an eye on the future, I made sure the new camera was capable of recording in 4K and at a smooth 60 frames per second (fps) and has a small boom microphone so that it makes pretty good audio recording as well.
If you are interested in more details about the video camera, you can read all about it over on Amazon’s website.
The Student Workbook area has been update to include a video player section and I have added a couple of videos of myself playing some of the ABRSM Grade 1 pieces for you to watch.
The upload section of the Workbook has been updated so that you can upload videos you create at home between lessons if you would like me to view them and offer you advice and answer any questions you have about the piece you are practicing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am a parent who brings my child to class. Is this safe?
A: Recording video is entirely optional and they will only be of the player’s hands. They will be uploaded to the pupil’s private workbook area and can only be viewed by you.
Q: Why can’t I see the videos we recorded today in my Student Workbook?
A: Processing and uploading videos take a lot longer than the audio recording we make. I will aim to have the ready for you by the day after recording.
