Feasibility of Producing Synchronized Video Tapes as Instructional Aids in the Study of Music; Final Report.
Skapski, George J.
As an innovative aid to the study of music, recordings were made of musical performances and later synchronized with musical notations. To make the structures of the music more readily visible, and after experimenting with the use of staff notation, the author-developed "Nota-Graph" notation system was used. In this notation, there are three equidistant lines representing the same three notes in all octaves. Slides were made of the graphs and then 'scanned' by the camera. As in most of the other technical phases of the program, some degree of failure was experienced. This was considered unavoidable in a developmental effort. Production of similar videotapes by schools is considered possible if they have the equipment for it. In the near future, electronic video recordings can be fed into television receivers, making library checkout for home use possible. Evaluations by participants and experts are appended. They are favorable. (MF)
