As a result of this program, the students at Nevis Public School will have improved playing and enhanced leadership skills, both in and out of the classroom. Nevis will benefit positively through a quality arts presentation, resulting in a deeper understanding and appreciation of the arts. We will evaluate the residency in three ways: 1) in-class responses and observed engagement from my students, 2) online surveys (hosted by The Copper Street Brass) for school faculty/staff, parents, students, and community members upon the residency’s culmination and 3) attendance numbers at the capstone concert.
After the Copper Street residency, there were significant improvements with brass players as well as the entire ensemble. All students have been conscious of how posture and listening affects their playing. The end result has been an ensemble playing in tune with each other and a group that is listening for each part of the music to be present. Even younger players are more aware of playing with good sounds. Online surveys were also taken to evaluate students individual growth.
