In the field of education the use of some of the ever-multiplying videos on the Web 2.0, such as those found on YouTube or video podcasts, is a relatively recent phenomenon, which is nevertheless starting to spread rapidly. Vodcasting – Web 2.0 video technology used in this research – is becoming a flexible and powerful tool for the delivery of educational content. Although it is certain that educational experiences using video podcasts are beginning to proliferate in higher education, very few are carried out in secondary schools, and examples in the area of musical education are scarce. The objective of the article is to show – through an action-research methodology – the effectiveness of podcasting/vodcasting in the instrumental performance of secondary school music students, who have used video podcasts for their instrumental training. The data obtained over the course of three academic years, based on video recordings carried out before and after having used video podcasts, highlight the progress in performance results amongst the students who used this tool.
