2. Video Recording Rules​​ • All recordings must be made for this 2023 competition, and not taken from another competition. • You may use any device of your choice such as your laptop or mobile phone. However, do not add any reverb or other sound effects. • At the beginning of each video, you must say "This is First/Last Name, performing Etude #__ for the 2023 bNoteable Virtual Region Music Competition." Then, no editing, cutting, splicing, and you must complete your recording in one take.  • Your face and hand position should be clearly visible in each video, the entire time. • The person performing in the video must be the same person who owns the bNoteable account. • Dress appropriately since it will make a good impression. Be mindful that colleges and drum corps staff might view your videos as well. • Each video file cannot exceed 1GB in file size. • Rename each video with your name and Etude #. For example, "Ryan Smith, Etude 37". • To be considered for a prize and for bNoteable to promote your profile, participants must perform each region etude in its entirety.

3. Video Recording Tips​​ • Find a quiet location for your recording. There should be no other sounds or audible distractions in your recording.  • Avoid visual distractions in the background.  • Dress appropriately. No, you don't have to wear a suit or fancy dress but put a little bit of effort into how you look. Avoid busy patterns and bright colors. • Remember to show your face and hand position in each video. • Be sure to watch and listen to your video before uploading it to your profile. However, you can always delete it and upload another as many times as you would like.
