Aaand I just recorded 30+ minutes of student instruction with my mic muted.

Learn from my fail. Check your audio settings before each recording.

@theartguy Was it going well? Perhaps the second-time around will be more polished and smooth.

@philipwhite I am resigned to treat it as a practice run and record it again, just like I tell my students when they find they have to restart a recording session.

@theartguy I've done that. And you can never recapture the same performance. Live & learn.

@Downes Talked about it in the new recording so students could learn from my failure as well. Would not have had that as fodder without the experience.
