Uploading a Video to YouTube


As part of our ‘Them Dirty Blues’ exercise I would like you all to record a video of you playing the transcription and then uploading it to the web.

Here’s a short video for those of you who don’t know how to record and post to YouTube via your own software – YouTube allows you to do it directly! The quality will be better if you use something like iMovie and then upload it to the web, but this isn’t a bad option for free!

If you’re on a mobile device (like iPhone or iPad) then it is really easy to upload a video directly from the YouTube app.

RICO Reeds Masterclass at Southport International Jazz Festival

Here’s a 10-minute video highlights package from my RICO masterclass at the 2013 Southport International Jazz festival.

Some of the questions are:

1. How can I follow the changes in a standard?

2. How do you improve playing by ear?

3. What is the best method to keep my reeds in working order?

and much more …

I hope you find this useful!
