You should use two phones or a phone and a tablet or Chromebook.  You can play the teleprompter video on the phone in the back while recording on the phone in the front. This will help you to keep your eyes near the camera. Phones have no fan noise unlike most laptops.  Notice how I stacked books on top of cereal boxes on the kitchen table in order to bring the phone to my seated eye level. Unfortunately some phones only have a mic on the bottom so you’ll have to test-record to see if the mic is picking up well. I hear a music stand works well to hold your devices. Raise it to eye level (likely have to sit).

Follow the instructions on the video to leave your earbud unplugged till the beep sounds so we get that sound on the recording. (Helps me sync up all the singers) Then plug in your ear buds. Sing with just one in your ear and the other tucked in the back of your shirt.

Once you have finished recording, listen and watch carefully to see if you have excellent sound and sharp well composed video. If not, fix and re-record.
