Submitting Files for Critique at Dojo U


Submitting your performances for critique is one of the most important aspects of Dojo U. It’s our primary means for you to get feedback on how you are playing.

First off, before you submit something, you’re going to need a means of recording. Frankly, modern smart-phones are all it takes to get started. Later, there are fancier ways to get great quality audio you can explore when you are ready.

If you want to dive in deep to the art of recording, check out this success plan.

Once you have a recorded performance, note that there are two primary means of submitting here on Dojo U.

Method 1: Primarily for Live Class Attendees

If you are looking to get critiqued on a live class, you’ll want to create an MP3 audio file and upload it to our Dropbox. Click here for how to do that.

Method 2: Get critiqued on our Facebook Group

If you can’t come to live classes, post a video to our Dojo U Engage Facebook group (Premium members only). In the comments, our expert bagpipe staff will offer you detailed critiques on your playing so you can mark your progress.

Let’s do this.

It’s not that hard (I repeat Not. That. Hard.) to develop a recording routine, and it’s time to dive in. You can’t reap the benefits of great feedback if you don’t get your foot out the door and start documenting your playing. So, let’s do this!

We’re looking forward to hearing you.
