The primary purpose of this essay is to describe and evaluate some uses of the video camera as a teaching and learning tool for double bassists. The use of a video camera was incorporated into the double bass programs at the University of Miami and the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts. Video recordings were made of students in entrance auditions, lessons, forums, recitals, jury examinations, mock orchestral auditions, rehearsals, and master classes. The tapes were reviewed with the instructor and comments recorded on a Performance Evaluation Form.Results suggested that video cameras and videotape feedback are useful tools in improving double bass performance. Student attitudes toward video cameras in the private studio were positive.Responses to a national survey of double bass professors in selected universities and conservatories of music support the premise that video cameras are useful teaching tools.
