Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will build relationships with members of the groups that have been underserved by the arts. We will increase our numbers of musicians taking advantage of these opportunities. We will continue to share our talents with local communities. Evaluate the number of students enrolled. Determine the number of students continuing through either level 2 or 3 classes. Analyze progress through skill competency and achievement in books. Survey students and parents about their summer experience. Receive oral feedback from students, parents and audience that hears their performance.
