  1. Open the Camera App
  2. Prepare Your Mobile Phone to Record

    – Make sure you can see yourself by tapping the “flip camera” icon.
    – Use a stack of books or a tripod, something to secure your phone in a horizontal orientation.
    – Be sure your volume is set at about 1/2 to 3/4 of its capability.
  3. Prepare Your Recording Environment

    – Make sure your face is “awake and expressive”
    – Make sure there will be no noise distractions (telephone, dog, dishwasher, vacuum, etc.)
    – Make sure you are in the middle of the frame
    – Ensure that you are able to see your face the whole entire time
  4. Prepare your listening Device

    – Get the accompaniment track ready on your computer or iPad. You will use headphones or earbuds to listen as you sing because you do not want want your recording device (your mobile phone) to hear/record that accompaniment.
  5. Time to Record

    – Make sure you are in video mode by sliding your functions icons at the bottom of your phone until the word VIDEO appears just above the red RECORD button.
    – After you have started recording, begin playing your accompaniment track (on your computer or iPad) as you listen through headphones or an earbud.
  6. Finish

    – Once you are done singing, leave a few seconds of video running before you stop recording on your phone.
    – If you are unhappy with your results (video or sound), simply try recording again. Easy!
