It’s invaluable to send videos to SKYPE students between lessons.
1) It fills in some of the gaps associated with long distance transmission where variations in volume and clarity might temporarily interrupt instruction.
2) It’s a summation of what transpired at the lesson along with recommendations to improve practicing and performance.
While some students videotape their lessons over Skype, others ask the teacher to do it.
I record a lesson only with the permission of a pupil, and select portions of video that underscore areas of remediation. In this process, the camera is focused on my hands to maximize student benefit.
Following a lesson to Greece today, I sent an adult pupil a video supplement that explored phrasing and voicing as applied to Chopin’s Waltz in B minor.
