Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The master class students and attendees will learn new clarinet skills and develop a renewed and deeper interest in the instrument. The concert audience will learn about the range of possibilities for the clarinet and gain inspiration and enjoyment at a high-quality performance.Direct observation and a survey will evaluate the master class and what the students learned. The concert audience will be asked to complete a survey.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Myroslava Hagen, guest artist and clinician from Salt Lake City, Utah, taught 2 master classes, one for 6-12th grade students and another for adults. In addition, she played two solos with the Park Rapids Community Band in a concert. Master class participants noted learning the importance of embouchure, finger and thumb placement, articulation, and tongue position. Concert-goers mentioned that they’d gained a better understanding of the clarinet, including the wide range of notes, sound, and versatility- giving them a new idea of the instrument’s capabilities.
