Tutorial

Welcome!

Welcome Star of the Sea Christmas Choir! Thank you for willing to participate in this collaborative project :)

This year's Christmas choir will be virtual of course, but thanks to you, we're going to make it extra special this year. The final video from this project will be inserted into the Dec 24/25 Christmas mass video recording on the Star of the Sea YouTube channel.

Play the video below to hear what the finished product will sound like when I stitch all your video submissions together. Then follow the instructions below the video to participate. 

Have fun and I can't wait to see your part!

STEP 1: PRACTICE YOUR PART

Depending on your ability, your mom/dad will assign you either part 1 or part 2. Once you know which part you're singing, play the appropriate lyric video below and practice your part until you have all the lyrics memorized and you don't have to look at the screen anymore. You might even know all the lyrics already!

Part 1: Lyric Video - If you have been assigned part 1, practice your part using this lyric video. Only sing the text highlighted in yellow.

Part 2: Lyric Video - If you have been assigned part 2, practice your part using this lyric video (only sing the text highlighted in yellow)...and yes - I added in an extra verse for you to sing!

STEP 3: GET MOM/DAD TO TAKE A VIDEO OF YOU SINGING YOUR PART

Once you feel confident that you know your part, get mom/dad to take a video of you singing your part using their phone/ipad/tablet. Be sure to use headphones to play the lyric video on your own device/computer so that the only thing we hear when mom/dad records you is your beautiful voice!

STEP 4: UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO

Once you've successfully completed your video recording, get mom/dad to upload the video using one of the following methods:

  • Upload to our shared Google Drive folder: https://drive.google.com/drive...
    OR...
  • If they have a YouTube account, upload to their YouTube account and send me the link.

STEP 5: LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU'RE DONE!

When you've completed your submission, get mom/dad to send me an email to let me know that your part has been submitted.  I will compile all the videos into one and send you a link to the final video when it's ready!

TIPS FOR FUN VIDEO EFFECTS

  1. When recording your video, record yourself from the beginning of the music track to the end of the music track even if you're not singing your part yet. You can bob your head or dance while you're waiting for your time to sing.
  2. NOTE TO PART 2 SINGERS: To make it look like you're actually interacting with the part 1 singers in the combined video, if you're singing part two, look to your right when you're not singing your part (as if you're looking at the part 1 singers).
  3. Smile and wave to everyone at the end of your video. Feel free to say "Merry Christmas!"
