Recording for the 21st Century Classroom

Clinic Synopsis:

We know the value of recording as a rehearsal tool, but often get stuck on the ‘why’ and ‘how’ to do it. In this session, Sweetwater’s Craig Edgar will demystify the process of recording in the classroom, and demonstrate how recording can be used as a tool to help flip your classroom in an authentic way, boost student ownership and engage your parent and administrator community.

Craig Edgar - Biographical Information

Craig Edgar is a former band director with 10 years of experience in the classroom. Having taught 4th-12thgrade band and Pre-K3 through 8th grade music, Craig has developed vertically integrated curricula to take students from their first notes to their college auditions. His ensembles performed at the San Francisco Festival of Gold, the National Memorial Day Parade and Concert series, and individually in the Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall. His educational philosophy was to create holistic musicians, not simply technicians – students who compose, improvise, and think critically about their progress and role in an ensemble. After moving back to the Midwest to support his parents, Craig now leads the institutional sales team at Sweetwater, serving schools and universities and training new sales engineers. He has also been featured in Sweetwater’s “How to Buy a Bass You’ll Love” YouTube Series and teaches the bass course in “Sweetwater University”. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his Wife, Kristina and son, Leo, building bass guitars, and smoking Texas style BBQ at home.
