Ken Nielsen Posted August 5, 2003 Report Share Posted August 5, 2003 On technology employed in violin training, I came up with the following thoughts: 1. use a computer to "slow down" difficult passages for students playing Suzuki (I think they mostly are played too fast to start.) 2. Burn the student a 'slowed down' version of the piece they are working on on CD at the lesson. 3, Use a digital video camera to capture a student's performance for self-examination (like standing in front of a mirror) and burn it onto DVD for the student's home viewing. 3. Give the student the recording of the entire lesson, at the end of the lesson, burnt onto CD. Then, the student can reference and examine for correctness, any point in the lesson. Very reinforcing I think. 4. Carried a step further, Digital caricatures are sometimes made by attaching sensors to those people who are doing the dance or the movements needed. Maybe have overlayed images of various players for movement and style for comparison - like they do with golf videos. 5. Use split-screen digital video to show comparisons of a students progress year to year or even side by side with some good example of proper posture. All of these, intended to increase focus and attention to detail and the basics of good playing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
