Welcome to our online Music Community!

Virtual concert is open for all Calgary students, BC, USA and European students. Finally you can all participate in the same event!


Concerts will be held online on the private FaceBook group
“Virtual Concert Mima and Cello Music School”. This will still be a formal event, so please try and where something formal (e.g. suit and tie, a dress).



FIRST THING TO DO

  1. 2)Once your piece is approved you can upload your best recording online.

  2. 3)And then you’re done!


WHERE TO UPLOAD


1) You will have to open your Facebook account first.

    “Virtual Concert Mima and Cello Music School”’.

IMPORTANT: Only members of this group will be allowed to see our concert. Videos, posts, comments or any other activity inside our group is NOT visible to the public.


EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: Do listen each other and give each other positive and supportive comments or likes. Regardless if the performer was learning for a week, month, year or decade, we all had an extremely difficult and hard time this year, and all performers will take everything you type in the comment box personally.


HOW TO RECORD

Any electronic device can work well. Camera, Computer, Laptop, Tablet, Cell phone etc.

Make sure the recording doesn’t cut the beginning or the ending of your performance.

Ensue that your video is recorded in good lighting.

Smile and bow before and after your performance.


I have received an e-mail from RCM on how to record a concert. Here is the link, click here to read it.


IT’S NOT LIVE, BE CREATIVE!!!

Do not try to make a replica of our regular concerts. Do something that you wouldn’t be able to make on stage, it’s your virtual presentation of your successes, so make it your own way!

For example, you can decorate your instrument and position your camera in different angles for a “cool” effect. Do it your way, use your imagination. Go for it !!!
