Do you have to be a world-class organist to record yourself?
I don't think so. There's a huge benefit to take a camera and record your practices and performances.
Not only it's an evidence of your progress over time and a great motivator to strive to advance in organ playing but you can multi-purpose your best videos - share them online with your fans, create a nice gift to your friends and family, and even make them available in the form of CD's and DVD's.
Everyone has a video recording equipment in their pocket now. It's difficult to find a viable excuse not to do it.
After I had chosen to make a commitment to record my recitals, I discovered that I have quite a substantial collection of my own storytelling improvisations. So a few days ago I published 8 of them as DVD's with Kunaki.
You can do the same. Of course, not all recordings will be worthy of sharing but you have to start somewhere. And Kunaki will create your professional level disc automatically for $1 (they even have the software for designing CD/DVD artwork).
All it takes is to set up your camera and start playing.
