For those of you not familiar with creating sound files, let us share a bit about the process. Students download a sound file from Noteflight, but that file is most often in general MIDI format. The voices, sound quality and over all impression of the piece might not match their vision or how they really want the piece to sound. For those with the ability and financial means, Logic and other sound editing programs can be used. For those who have digital pianos, such as the Yamaha Clavinova, they can revoice and edit on this powerful digital instrument. Most of the time, kids just try to play their piece while a parent holds a mic. We are most grateful for any attempt to share their composition. Thank you to the dedicated teachers who help their students with their sound files. Most of the pieces here have been editied on the Yamaha Clavinova. Many thanks to Susan Ogilvy at the Keyboard Technology and Ensemble Seminars held in Edmond Oklahoma for showing many of our teachers how to make this all happen.
