Don'ts for Parents of Piano StudentsWritten by Emily Sigers
Continued from page 1
Don't fail to cooperate with teacher. The teacher needs your help and your child will reap benefit.
Don't hesitate about giving teacher a free hand in training of your child. If you have not sufficient confidence in him to do so, it would be better to engage another instructor.
Don't expect teacher to extend special favors to your child because you regard him or her as a little genius. If your child has exceptional gifts, teacher will soon discover them and will know how to act.
Don't give your child cause to feel that you are too closely or jealously watching his or her progress. Young people are likely to resent such an attitude. On other hand, don't fail to display a sympathetic interest in work your child is doing. A bit of advice, a word of encouragement, a friendly suggestion, a little praise, if judiciously administered, will be helpful and stimulating.

An introduction to video editingWritten by Jakob Jelling
Continued from page 1
This type of video edition allows video and movie creators to use their imagination and manipulate video they have captured in their PCs as they wish. Among many different possibilities which video editing software pieces bring, there are many different effects, transitions, and audio manipulations as well. The video's audio can be edited along with video editing itself since audios are manipulated in different tracks, separately from images.
Video editing is where final video is processed, effects added, cuts and transitions decided and sequences placed in final order. After video editing, a home made video could look completely professional depending on way in which user manages editing software tools. Most video editing software pieces are complicated to use, but we can learn how to use them by practicing, and once we have acquired right amount of experience on it, product will surely be worthwhile effort.
