An Easy Recipe for Video Tutorials
Thompson, Douglas Earl
General Music Today, v26 n3 p48-50 Apr 2013
This article presents a recipe for making attractive, informative tutorials that can be sent to students and parents via e-mail or posted on a school website. Although tutorials are often included with software, many are either too complex or too rudimentary to directly address music educators’ unique needs. The recipe focuses on the following four operations: (1) editing and arranging video clips; (2) adding audio overdubs and adjusting sound levels; (3) adding titles; and (4) outputting the finished product in an appropriate video format. The software tool used is iMovie ’11 (Version 9.0.8), a software title included with Apple Macintosh computers at no additional charge.(Contains 1 note.)
