1 Set up your recording space.

  • Silence/remove intermittent noise sources (air conditioning, phones, fans, desktop computers, pets, etc.).
  • Find a QUIET space with minimal ambient noise and echoes.
  • Ensure bright lighting (e.g. natural, ceiling/floor lamps, desk lamps).
  • Avoid backlighting (lights/windows behind you while shooting).
  • Place your sheet music so you don’t have to look too far down while recording.

2 Set up your camera.

  • Set up your camera to record in landscape (wide) orientation.
  • Frame your video so we can see you from the navel up. Make sure your head is near the top edge of the video. Use a PLAIN WALL as a background.
  • Change your video recording mode to Standard Definition (SD) if possible, or 720p at 30fps. Tutorial: iPhones Android.

3 Dress for your performance.

  • Make sure your clothing contrasts with the background.
