Waldorf Spring Concert 2020 Collage:

"Bats, Zombies and Bones! Oh MY!!" 

YOU WILL NEED 2 DEVICES AND EARBUDS OR HEADPHONES

  • device #1 (phone) will be used to film your performance in one take 

  • device #2 will play a backing audio track in your ear to align your performance (phone or tablet)

       

          In general, phone cameras are way better than iPad or tablet cameras.

Step #1 DOWNLOAD & PRACTICE

  • Download your individual part's audio track. (All tracks are available on Google Classroom under ' Spring Concert Video Collage") 

  • Practice as much as you can with the audio track to become familiar with the tempo and everything else.​

  • You do NOT have to be perfect. Just do your best and smile! (in the videos below, I messed up several times, but I kept going)

  • If you can only contribute one musical piece great! Two? Wonderful! All the pieces we've worked on? You're a Rock Star!!!

Step #2​ FILM YOURSELF

  • Each musical piece should be recorded separately

  • Record the easiest piece first and upload that ASAP! (Batman, Carousel, etc..)

  • Concert Dress: solid colored top, dark bottoms. Combed hair, no chocolate on your face, please.

  • PLEASE TUNE (A=440hz) iPhone and Android Tuning apps are available

  • "Portrait Mode" (vertical) with Device #1.

  • Fill the shot with you and your instrument if possible (not your ceiling) Violins & Violas, standing, waist up view.

  • Try to find a quiet space and one that is well lit.  (Sitting facing a window is often better than trying to use artificial light)

  • Listen to the audio and follow the instruction on it. 

  • Smile and do your best.

  • GO!  Repeat as necessary.   ;)
