Recording Guidelines

How to frame:

  • Shoot horizontally (If you are not sure what that means, please watch this short video)
  • Face the camera, make sure your instrument is in the shot as well as your face.
  • Clear the background (Good excuse to clean your room!)

What to wear:

  • Dress in nice black attire (All black blouse, nice shirt or dress for girls; nice black shirts for boys, no T-shirts with logos.)

What you will need:

  • Two devices – One to record, the other one to play the backing track
  • Headphones

How To Record:

  1. Prepare your recording device so it’s ready to record.
  2. Prepare the second device to play the backing track.
  3. Put on your headphones connected to the device that will play the backing track.
  4. Press the record button.
  5. Play the backing track (listen for the two beats of 4 counts in the beginning,) come in right after.
  6. Play with the backing track.
  7. Right after you finish, don’t move too quickly to sop the recording. Stay still for 5 seconds. (This will make editing a lot easier)


  • Final recording is due on May 17th
