How to Record

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT FOR "SIMPLE GIFTS" IS APRIL 17, 2020 AT 11:59PM.

ALL SUBMISSIONS AFTER THIS DATE WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE FINAL PROJECT.

Below you will find resources to help you learn the piece of music as well as tools for when you are ready to record. Make sure you get the password from your director before you can access the PDF files of the music.

When you are ready to record, use headphones to play the audio file below on one device while recording yourself on another. For example, play the video or audio on a laptop with your headphones connected to it and record yourself using your phone or webcam. You can record a video of yourself or if you would prefer, you can submit an audio.
