- Find a quiet space or room with sufficient lighting.
- Set up a device that can stand upright, in landscape mode, facing you to record (video and audio). Please stand between 3-5 feet away from the recording device for better sound quality!
- (For strings, brass & woodwinds) Be sure to tune. An app called Pitch is available for tuning assistance on the App Store as well as Google Play.
- Make sure the device’s camera can see you, your head, your hands, and your instrument (if applicable).
- Put on headphones or earphones so you can hear the audio track as you play. That way, the eventual audience will only hear you and not the pre-recording.
- Ready, set, record!
LAST DAY TO SUBMIT VIDEOS: JULY 4
- If I play multiple instruments at CCSM, can I submit multiple recordings? Yes!
