Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We provide access to musical training for youth in the choral arts for treble voices and through community concerts and outreach performances. Seeking to reduce barriers to participation, we provide scholarships to singers with financial need. Outcomes will be measured through data collection including choir participants, attendance at events, number of events, and number and amount of scholarships awarded.

Measurable Outcome(s)

One student moved into Suzuki Book 3. Three students finished Book 1. Two new students started. Fourteen students learned at least one new song.
