Video Submission Tips
- Do your best to demonstrate that your research is presentation worthy and will interest and be useful to a broad audience/range of musicians.
- Two minutes is not a lot of time, but enough time to make a strong impact. Plan what you’re going to say to eliminate excessive “filler words,” and make your argument or proposal as clear as possible.
- Show off your presentation skills! You will be actively engaging a large audience.
- Speak loudly and clearly, especially if you are not using a microphone.
- Review your video to make sure it’s exactly right.
- Confirm that your video is viewable to the public and is not password protected, locked or private. MTNA will not be responsible for following up on videos that are not viewable.
- Most importantly, relax, have fun and be creative!
Advisors, faculty members, independent music teachers who would like to present a public master class to pre-college and college students should submit a 5-minute (maximum) video via YouTube, Vimeo or Google Drive through the Symposium website.
