Not bad for a first clip, mine was far worse!

Firstly, it's probably a good idea to record in a widescreen resolution, most people have widescreen monitors and it just looks better (1280x720 is probably best seeing as its source).

Secondly you've set up the project settings wrong that's why you can see black borders on either side so, in file>project properties set it to the width+height of the video you've recorded, make the field order None (progressive scan), pixel aspect ratio 1.0000 (Square). You'll see what I mean when you go into project properties.

As for effects/masking etc. I'd just suggest to keep it as minimal as possible for now while you're learning, nothing looks worse than a movie full of presets and recycled transitions, try to fade the clips in more though as hard cuts look pretty lame.

Personally I'd use music that has more opportunities to sync to also.

end of essay.
