Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will build relationships with members of groups that have been underserved by the arts.Assess registration numbers. Survey students. Survey parents. Solicit other feedback from members/parents--individual comments and reactions. Video record and then view student performance at senior resident facility. Take photos of players and audience at performance.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Introduction to Strings Level 2 met students' interest in progressing on their string instrument. Introduction to Strings Level 1 needs improvements with staff commitment. Introduction to Strings on both levels is helping Crow River Area Youth Orchestra to be more visible in the community.
