Does the video player keep the pitch of the song when I adjust the tempo?

Yes. Students can record a video of their music teacher demonstrating how to play a song, then practice the song at home by playing along with the video.

Changing the Tempo of Music Lesson Videos

Students can speed up or slow down the playback speed and play along at a comfortable tempo of their choosing. Changing the playback tempo won't change the pitch of the song. It will still be the same key as the original recording. From beginner songs like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star to advanced piano duets, students benefit tremendously from the MusicTeacherNotes video features.

Clipping Music Lesson Videos

Students can clip the original video so they can focus on specific parts of the song. They can make the clips repeat at a slower tempo so they can practice the clips many times in a short period-of-time.

Looping Music Lesson Videos

Students also have the option to loop the video or video clips, and they can add a countdown a timer for a short break in between each playback. The countdown timer allows a few seconds for students to prepare for the clip to restart.

Video is one of the best ways to inspire kids to play an instrument correctly. They hear how it's supposed to sound, and they play along with the proper rhythm. The ability to change the tempo, clip the videos, and set timers, enhances learning decreases frustration for the student and makes for a much more productive practice session.
