String Theory 1

I recently received a Flip Video Camera as a gift. I soon began to wonder about educational uses e.g. ensemble resource described here; close up filming of popular exam pieces; definitions on wordia etc. However, real life tends to choose the order of things and the first project became obvious today. I was encouraging a pupil to change strings in advance of concerts at the end of this term. I noticed the merest hint of a grimace. Could it be the expense? Surely not the effort? In fact it was uncertainty about the process of changing the strings – less obvious on a classical guitar than acoustic or electric. So what better way to convey the information than on video. I need to change my strings anyway. I’ll keep YouPosted.
