Video Creation For Music Teachers
Video Creation For Music Teachers is an online course for teachers who want to create playalongs, tutorials, end-of-year showcases and yes, even virtual ensemble videos.
Hello! I'm Katie Wardrobe.
Join me inside the Video Creation for Music Teachers online course, and I'll show you how you can create a range of video projects. And we will have fun doing it!
I am an education technology trainer, speaker and consultant from Melbourne, Australia. I run my own business - Midnight Music and I love working with adult learners. I've trained thousands of teachers from all over the world - both online and in person - for around 12 years and I still get a thrill when someone learns something new and exciting!
I have often said that one of the most useful things I've learnt in recent years is how to create and edit videos. It's something I truly love doing (seriously!) and my video projects have included everything from simple tasks (cropping unwanted sections and adding fade-ins and titles) to more advanced work (ex. scripted screencast tutorials with annotations). I've even worked to create more complex timed music videos with hundreds of images that change every two beats of the music! I'll teach the best and easiest ways to do it all!
Let's get started!

"This is a brilliant way to do a PD - in the comfort of your home! Katie is an excellent communicator and sets you up for success from the very beginning, with helpful notes and the ability to ask questions on the go. Her sessions are sequential and easy to follow, and if there is something you need clarification on, she is more than willing to help.

frequently asked questions
What if I'm a beginner? Or a technophobe??
Then you will be amongst friends :) This course assumes no prior knowledge and everything is explained clearly, without "tech-speak" or jargon.
My aim is to get you started quickly and easily and to have fun!
Is the Video Creation course live? Is there a time limit on access to the training materials?
The courses and training materials are all pre-recorded and will be available from mid-January 2021. You will have ongoing access to all materials for as long as you have an active membership to the Midnight Music Community and you can go at your own pace.
The course videos can be watched at any time day or night. You can also re-watch each one as many times as you like, which is perfect if you need a refresher down the track!
What do I need for the course?
To complete the projects in this course you will need a Windows or Mac computer (the software we're using won't work on an iPad or Chromebook). You'll need the Loom Chrome Extension AND the desktop version of Loom (both are free and as an educator you can upgrade to the Pro version at no extra cost. You will also need to download the Da Vinci Resolve video editing software (also free!).
What if I don't have a computer that meets the requirements?
The requirements for this course are based on the requirements to run a video editing software application like Da Vinci Resolve. If your computer is an old one and/or runs slowly you will really struggle to complete the projects (specifically those in modules 3, 4 and 5) and you may find it very frustrating because your computer won't have the processing power needed. You are more than welcome to join the course anyway but I want to make sure that all course members understand this ahead of time to avoid disappointment down the track!
