I am occasionally knocked out by the effectiveness of some of the video I see that is freely available on YouTube – especially that many people are making these available at no cost too!
This brief post was inspired by something I was sent by a fellow trumpet play on Facebook today which featured the highly talented trumpet player, Dominck Farinacci who has created a series of tutorials on a variety of brass techniques using the music of Clifford Brown.
This example is about “Ghost Tongueing” – his explanation is superb and something I will be personally working on !
Clifford-isms (Part 2/3): Ghost TonguingPart 4/8 of the #CliffordBrown Educational Series. This post deals with Ghost Tonguing, one of the most defining characteristics of Clifford’s playing. (Select HD for best viewing).

I know I had said this series would only be for October, but each video ended up getting more in depth than I initially anticipated, and I’ve gotten so many great questions from you about specific aspects of his playing, so I’m dedicating a little more time to tailoring them around the requests. Thank you all for your comments and interaction throughout this series!

(A by product of this post is that I also had to learn how to embed a Facebook video into WordPress!).
Here’s Dominick in action – I love the fact he is taking time on the tour bus to do this and is counted in by the driver![youtube https://youtu.be/4DTSKAlnCUo]
My second example is the awesome Astrid – Astrid is a teacher and creates highly engaging videos on a variety of topics and as it is Christmas time, here she is explaining where German words end![youtube https://youtu.be/u7F20xIb4kI]
Next, a short but effective video from Don Taylor on how to run a great webinar. (check out his ebook on this too!).[youtube https://youtu.be/vHWMB-IK9TQ]
Don also runs an annual survey on “what’s hot” in Learning and Development – the current survey results have Video well towards the bottom of the list – but I think this is a reflection of the fact that Video has already become a standard tool of choice.
Finally, the work of Outtakes continues to impress – they have taken the art of interactive video to a new level with their DAz technology. This enables video to having moving “hotspots” which take the viewer to additional content and is also now trackable using SCORM or TinCan xApi.[youtube https://youtu.be/ZTCE_k-gwos]
Video isn’t hot, it’s just business as usual now!
