  • This clinic will present an overview of the use of recording and playback in the ensemble setting. The pros and cons of various equipment will be discussed, including tips on programming and setting up the recording devices for the most efficient use in rehearsals. The ways in which teachers can use this technology to better themselves as educators and their students as performers will be addressed, as well as the topic of affordability and financing new equipment.
