This is a first for me. I have a new student who is in 6th grade and her mother spent the first lessons taking tons of pics and video. I thought it was just a novelty thing to show the grandparents and such. The second lesson she sat intently and videotaped the lesson until I turned to her and asked if that was what she was doing. She seemed flustered and said it was to share with Grandma and also for the daughter to refer to in practice.
I know they have a “friend” who also got a harp for Christmas and I suspect the videoing of the lesson is to share with her ( they mentioned that she couldn’t afford lessons right now). I am thinking of telling the mother that she can audio record the lessons so if her daughter would like to refer to it, she can and she will remember what she was doing when I was speaking. I am not comfortable with someone other than me videotaping the lessons. Is that weird? With social media and Youtube being so popular, I guess I want to control what might end up there….
