This season, everyone at Dallas Piano Academy has been playing through fun Christmas music! One of my favorite parts of this time of the year is hearing people play fun holiday songs. Here are some tips to sending out the perfect virtual Christmas card to your friends and family!
1) Pick out your favorite Christmas song and practice! You want to feel really confident playing them!
2) Have someone help you film. Make sure it is quiet when you are recording!
3) The beauty of doing this at home is you can re-do it as many times as you want! Try it until you get the songs right where you want them.
4) Make sure you have good lighting and no clutter in the background. If you want, say “Merry Christmas” and take a bow at the end of your video!
5) Your video can now
be sent out to grandparents, relatives, and friends! Email it or upload it
online and send the link out!
Mrs. Wooldridge played in the orchestra for the First Baptist Dallas Christmas Spectacular earlier this month. If you would like to see a program filled with Christmas music and dance that is suitable for all ages, you'll want to watch this! Here is a link to the video. Enjoy!
