Recording and hearing yourself played back can be very instructive. It can highlight mistakes that you don’t hear while you play. Practice recordings also get you accustomed to being recorded.

Whether you use a dedicated device, your iPhone, or a DAW your computer, record yourself playing some of the material you’ve been practicing. You don’t need a high quality mic or audio interface at this point. The onboard mic is good enough for what we’re trying to do here.

Listen to your recording, work on your tone, clarity and timing, then try recording again.
