Back in the day, one had to beg, borrow or buy some expensive camera equipment in order to record oneself playing. How times have changed!
The smart phone and its handy camera have made it a lot easier for most people to be able to easily record themselves playing. It might not produce a top-level video, but certainly it's enough to be able to do some self-analysis.
Earlier this week, Virginia-based violin professor Susanna Klein shared some great ideas in her Violinist.com blog about how teachers and students can use video to track improvements, analyze the way they practice and notice things about their playing that they might not catch while concentrating on playing.
How often do you use video in your violin practice or teaching? What kinds of things does it help you with? How long have you been recording yourself? Or is it something that you just don't do or have not tried? Please participate in the vote and then share your thoughts and tips in the comments section.
