Abstract This paper discusses the value of using video recordings to support reflective practice. We investigated how video can be used to revisit events to evaluate the teaching and learning experience. Video data were used in a child-initiated music project emerging from planned group activities by a music teacher. The quality of the children's engagement in the music group was viewed through an observation format that focused on levels of involvement. The context for the research consisted of formal structured music sessions. The video allowed us to identify responses from the children to the group activities and to interpret signs of shared in-depth learning. We unpack the video data by using the involvement rating scale from the early childhood observation scales, Reflect, Respect, Relate. Through this exercise we were able to observe and analyse examples of the children's musical understandings. We conclude that utilising video to retrospectively evaluate involvement has the potential to enhance understanding of the quality of learning.
